Situated on the south bank of the River Thames, Windsor is connected to Eton in the north by the Windsor Bridge. Windsor is home to lots of great tourist attractions including Windsor Castle - a place where the royal family frequently stay, and of course the world-famous Legoland - a favourite with children. Although not particularly rural, the area is also home to several fine walks, including the Long Walk up to Windsor Castle - a scenic route every resident and tourist should aim to enjoy at least once.
There are lots of great shops to browse in Windsor, selling everything from souvenirs to fresh farm produce. As well as the mainstays of most major UK high streets, you'll find lots of smaller, independently owned shops and boutiques in the area too, adding to the local charm. If the shops in Windsor aren't quite up to your standards then the bustling shopping districts of central London are only a brief train journey away - just another advantage of residing in this fantastic location.
