Starting on the 10th June we will see the guard changing everyday in Windsor. Two ways to view the change. Either by purchasing a ticket and gaining access to the castle by 10.55am. Or by watching the guard march past anywhere on the High St.
It is such an honour to be doing this. We are very pleased with our latest review for A Walk in Eton.
Tickets online here or over the counter at the Windsor Information Centre

This Saturday 18th May at 14.30 hours will see the Household Cavalry exercising their freedom to march through Windsor. It is in fact a goodbye parade. After 200 years of being in Windsor. The Household Cavalry have done Windsor proud and have been an outstanding and excellent regiment. It will be sad to see them go.
There are expected crowds of around 10-15,000 and as Windsor Castle is closed that day for the Royal Wedding of Lady Gabriella Windsor and Tom Kingston, the castle is closed so there will be quite a gathering of visitors and veterans watching in Windsor on Saturday.
The parade starts at Combermere Barracks and on to the Long walk on to Park St, St Albans St, Castle Hill and the High St. The parade will advance and face the Guild Hall and pause for a short moment. It will then make it’s way back to Combermere Barracks.
Starting the 10th of June we have the Royal Guard marching everyday. You can see them on the High St anytime from around 10.45am.
Occasionally we do get asked if visitors can bring their bikes with them on a walk, knowing that Berkshire is very popular with bicycle riders.
As Windsor is a heavily pedestrianized area it is difficult to carry and walk a bicycle around. So we encourage visitors who have bikes to use the bike locking areas around Windsor. The most central being the Windsor Royal Shopping Entrance. There are six racks located in that position and other locations include the following
Oxford Road East
Bachelor Acre – next to disabled parking.
River street Car Park
Thames Street (Windsor Bridge)
There are racks available in both train stations.

The Household Cavalry will be Exercising their Freedom to march through Windsor on Saturday 18th May at 14.30pm. The Cavalry have been based here for over two hundred years so it will be a goodbye to Windsor Parade. They are due to move down to Salisbury Plain as part of the Army’s Restructuring. The parade will be around 14.30hrs but an early morning parade will also take place. This is the day of Lady Gabriella’s wedding so Windsor Castle will be closed. So you can expect heavy pedestrianized areas, road closures and parking restrictions in place. They will all be published here. https://www.roadworks.org
The parade route will include the Long Walk, Park Street, St Albans Street, Castle Hill, High Street, Sheet Street and the Kings Road, with the regiment pausing briefly at the Guildhall where a Salute will be taken.
