Windsor City Sightseeing Bus Tour – Emily Hobbs

Having lived in Windsor all my life this is something that I hadn’t done before and felt that this would really help to refresh my knowledge of Windsor. My colleague, Lou, and I took the bus trip on a sunny Wednesday afternoon and really enjoyed the experience.

We started the tour at the first stop on Castle Hill directly outside Windsor Castle. As you get on the bus you are given a set of headphones that you plug in for the duration of the tour, this is a multi-lingual guided tour so is suitable for different nationalities.

We decided to sit on the top deck as it was a nice day and thought this would be best way to take in the sites – just watch out for some of the higher trees as you go through Datchet as they do hang over the side of the bus. There is so much to see in Windsor and the surrounding areas and this is a great way to see everything without wearing out your feet!

There are 11 Bus stops that you can Hop-On or Hop-Off as you please, as the buses come every 30 minutes giving you plenty of time to get off and have a look around or stop for lunch, knowing another bus is just around the corner.

The bus tour is great value for money at just £13 per adult or £30 for a family ticket, 2 adults 2 children (2017 prices) as it is both informative and enjoyable for anyone looking to explore and learn the history of Windsor. As it is a short trip of around 45 minutes it is suitable for individuals, couples or families of all ages.Windsor Open top Bus Tour

MESSING ABOUT ON THE WATER – AWL girls go cruisin’

Lou-Boat-Trip

As part of my on-the-job training it’s important for me to know all about Windsor and understand what attracts over 6 million visitors to the town each year. With this in mind, and not knowing much about Windsor’s amazing history, I was excited to take a 40-minute boat trip up the River Thames with French Brothers.

Lou-Boat-Trip2The commentary was interesting and informative… and perfectly timed – we were sailing past the exact view as it was mentioned on the tape.  As we passed the Eton College playing fields we learnt that the school was founded in 1440 by Henry VI… who knew?  I would recommend sitting further back if you want to chat as the front of the boat was quite loud.

You get a great view of Windsor Racecourse on the way up to Boveney Lock & Weir where the boat turns around.  Very pretty, and wonderful to watch the world – and the swans – go by from the comfort of your seat.  On the way back, there are stunning views of Windsor Castle.  Camera’s at the ready…

My colleague, who lives in Windsor, found the trip very informative and she has learnt some new things about her home town.  This trip is suitable for all ages and is equally interesting if you are new to the town or have lived in Windsor your whole life.
