How to Travel Around Windsor When a Large Group?
Windsor is an extremely small city which makes getting around it easy as it can all be done by foot. From the castle right the way to your party activity you will be able to stroll your way through all the quaint streets. Its two main train stations:
- Windsor and Eton Central Train Station
- Windsor and Eton Riverside Train Station
Both stations take you into the centre which is then easily navigated on foot from the banks of the river in the famous Windsor Castle. And of course as expected if needed a black cab is only down the road.
