Sit back, relax, and let the romance of steam travel whisk you away to a bygone era. You will travel onboard the the Royal Windsor to one of the UK’s most popular destinations, the stunning venue for Harry and Meghan’s special day in 2018. At Windsor Castle over 900 years of royal history are waiting for you – from William the Conqueror all the way through to Queen Elizabeth II. This steam train journey is one-way, giving you the flexibility to spend as much time in Windsor as you like. Take a stroll to Eton and visit the grounds of its College – one of the largest secondary schools in the country and amongst the most prestigious. 

Starting from London Victoria pass some of the city’s famous landmarks including Chelsea Bridge, The Royal Hospital, and Battersea Power Station. Head towards the leafy suburbs, crossing the Thames and passing reservoirs and lakes to reach Windsor and Eton Riverside Station. Windsor has a rich mix of history, culture, heritage, and fun. The town is dominated by Windsor Castle which is over 900 years old and the largest inhabited castle in the world. Aside from the castle, there’s much more to see and do, including visiting the award-winning Savill Garden, taking a guided tour of the town’s numerous cobbled streets and Tudor buildings, or enjoying a walk along the river.

Your flexible return train ticket from Windsor and Eton Riverside to London Waterloo with South Western Railways can be used anytime on the same day.
