Windsor Tours with Great British Trips
Windsor is totally dominated by its castle, the largest in Britain, and a home of the Royal family for 900 years. The town itself has many interesting old buildings dating back to the 17th Century, particularly in the cobbled streets of the Guildhall Island. The pedestrianised area in the town provides a pleasant shopping and dining environment, with plenty of opportunities to buy your British souvenirs. The small town of Eton is just across the River Thames on which you can enjoy a river cruise, is much quieter than its neighbour Windsor, but has much to see in its High Street which is full of peculiar buildings with Georgian facades and many timber-framed structures. The town is also home to the world famous educational establishment Eton College.
