Windsor by bike

Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world, and the Queen of England’s favourite.

Located on a scenic cliff-top location above the river Thames, it makes the perfect destination for our gentle bike tour. After meeting at Windsor and Eton Riverside train station, we jump on board our comfy bikes to begin our tour.

The bike tour around the scenic Thames Valley is a flat and largely traffic-free 8 miles (13km) through country lanes and designated bike tracks.  There is plenty of time to stop and take photos en-route.

The tour finishes back in central Windsor, a short walk from the castle, the towns various shopping & eating destinations or trains stations for your return to London.

A truly historic day out guaranteed!
