Things to do in Windsor

Eating & Drinking

Whatever your taste there is a variety of restaurants, bars and pubs either within walking distance or a short drive from 76 Duke Street:

Countryside & Gardens

Windsor Great Park

The Great Park, part of a vast Norman hunting chase, is set in 2,020 hectares (5,000 acres) of the Surrey and Berkshire countryside stretching from Windsor Castle to the north and Ascot to the south. With its varied landscape and sweeping deer lawns, woods, coverts and huge solitary ancient oaks, the park abounds in wildlife.

Savill Gardens

The Savill Garden is one of Britain’s greatest ornamental gardens. Neither a botanical garden, nor a kitchen garden attached to a great house, it is a garden for the garden’s sake, enjoyed by horticulturalists and enthusiasts alike. It never fails to charm visitors who come to explore its 35 acres of contemporary and classically designed gardens and exotic woodland.

Horse Racing & Equestrian

Windsor Racecourse & Monday Racing

With a fabulous island setting on the banks of the River Thames, a warm welcome from the minute you arrive, our wonderful Monday atmosphere and our superb hospitality, there's no better way to start your week!
