London's Kensington Palace has officially confirmed that the wedding of Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle is taking place at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle on 19 May 2018 with the British royal family in attendance.

In a break with royal tradition, the wedding is being held on a Saturday rather than a weekday.

The Royal Wedding will be Windsor's event of the year. It will be busy and bustling and visitors to the town will be hoping for a glimpse of Harry and his bride as they appear in public as man and wife for the first time.

Then later in the year, probably October, Princess Eugenie will walk down the same aisle to marry fiance Jack Brooksbank.

LongWalkWindsor.jpg

There are some very enjoyable walks around Windsor, two of which originate in the centre of the town. Firstly there is the Long Walk that starts of the eastern gates of the Castle and ends over three miles away at the equestrian statue of George III. It is a lovely summer walk and offers superb views of the castle. It is long (approx 3 miles) so remember to take a drink of water with you!
The other is a circuit round the extensive walls of Windsor Castle, which takes in the charming neighbouring village of Datchet and includes the Royal Family's Windsor Farm Shop where you can enjoy a cream tea and purchase produce from the royal estates.

Windsor Great Park comprises some 4,800 acres of lush woodlands, heaths and farmland which surround Windsor Castle. It is all so very green! The Duke of Edinburgh is the head ranger. It is massive - there is lots to see including Saville Gardens, Virginia Water, Obelisk Pond, Ranger's Gate and Queen Anne's Ride. 

Ascot Racecourse is located at the southern end of the Great Park and has, for over 300 years, been famous for hosting some of the world's finest horse racing events, the most famous of which being Royal Ascot which takes place every year in early June. The Royal Procession is a major attraction - your opportunity to see senior members of the British Royal Family in their horsedrawn open carriages waving to the general public before enjoying the races. 

No family trip to Windsor would be complete without a visit to Legoland, which is situated just 1.5 miles outside the town centre. It is an amazing fantasy wonderland that celebrates the ingenuity of the Lego brick! A must-see for all kids! A day trip will give you a great opportunity to go on a selection of rides and visit all the kingdoms and meticulously constructed Lego exhibits.

Windsor offers lots of opportunities for keen photographers of architecture, nature and landscapes.

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead is situated in England's leafy Berkshire, some 20 miles west of central London on the southern banks of England's River Thames.  It's most famous landmark is Windsor Castle, one of the Queen's main official residences. Steeped in the pageantry and history of the Royal Family, it is a marvellous place to visit.

There is so much in lively Windsor to inspire the visitor. It is an ancient town, full of interesting architecture with many shops, cafes and pubs, many of which are found in the old Royal Station.

Windsor Castle is the largest and oldest inhabited castle in the whole world and is surrounded by Windsor Great Park where you can stroll up the majestic Long Walk and enjoy the Berkshire countryside and lines of lush trees. You can always tell if Her Majesty is "at home" - if she is then the royal coat of arms will have been hoisted up the flagpole on the Round Tower. Many parts of the castle are open to the general public.

Eton, with its world-renowned college, is just a short stroll from the Castle.

You can take a river cruise from Windsor, with cream tea, and enjoy the glorious Wisley Gardens.

Well connected to London via train, there are two railway stations - Riverside and Central.
