The Central Southern England region
Windsor has a long and colourful history. Thanks to the royal connection there are lots of first hand documentary sources available for those interested in the history of the town of Windsor, Berkshire.
The story of the settlement begins in the dawn of prehistory. The last ice age saw glaciers within 20 miles of where Windsor now stands. As the ice melted, the massive quantities of water carved the path of the river Thames
The river provided the first easy path through the growing forests so we believe that many settlers would have passed the bluff where the castle now stands while heading west into unknown lands. Evidence of Deer, Horses, Mammoth and Rhinoceros all point to plenty of hunting opportunities for the first peoples to arrive after the ice retreated. A mammoth tusk can be found in the Windsor Museum.
For the next eight thousand years or so, hunter gatherers and later on, farmers left their mark on the landscape. The Thames valley is awash with flint tools and the evidence of their manufacture.
Windsor is best known for its Royal connections. The world-famous Windsor Castle is almost one thousand years old and a visit to this royal residence is certainly top of the list of things to do in Berkshire.
Windsor Castle one of the homes of the British Royal Family and brings with it all the pomp and ceremony of the royal household. The regular changing of the guard ceremony, state visits of foreign dignitaries and even the occasional Royal Wedding means there is always something to see.
There are many excellent restaurants in Windsor. If you are thinking of eating out in Windsor you won't be disappointed. Read our restaurant reviews (written by local residents) for an objective opinion of where to eat at a price to suit your budget.
The glorious River Thames runs through the heart of town offering great opportunities for mucking about in boats. Our public leisure centre and swimming pools rival private gyms in terms of both quality and facilities. The gym looks out directly onto the riverside, making getting fit a real pleasure. The river is also home to the famous white swans. The annual Swan Upping ceremony is just one of the ways we keep a good track of the health and wellbeing of these beautiful birds
The Great Park is home to some of the oldest oak trees in England along with the world famous Savill Gardens, Virginia Waters and Valley gardens. Open all year round the Park offers many lovely walks and is a great way of exploring England's beautiful wood and park land. The changing seasons bring new and beautiful things to discover on each time you visit and is a real delight for horticultural and nature lovers alike.
Add to all that, the thriving local Theatre scene with both the Theatre Royal and Windsor Arts Centre offering regular entertainment, loads of restaurants and bars and you have the recipe for a truly wonderful town that delights both visitors and residents alike.
