Yesterday I went on a little day trip to Windsor. I am still hyped about the Royal Wedding, and have never visited before, so was super excited to have a little explore! We only had a few hours in Windsor so didn’t go inside the castle grounds, but we still found some absolutely beautiful little spots
The Long Walk
The Long Walk is indeed very long! Royal Wedding fanaticos will recognise this stretch of road from the post-ceremony procession when Harry and Meghan travelled through Windsor to greet well-wishers. Probably the most famous view of the castle can be seen from the statue at the end of the Long Walk (but unfortunately we didn’t have time to walk the whole length!) The area is also a deer park, with around 500 of the lovely creatures to spot.
The mooch around the outside of the castle had us feeling suitably British (and hungry!) so we went in search of Afternoon Tea. We stumbled upon the most COMPLETELY STUNNING (and instagrammable!) cafe and cake shop – Madame Posh. The interior is bursting with flowers, velvet couches, statues and the most beautiful tasty treats.
After demolishing the most DELISH cream tea, we went for a sunny stroll along the river.
The river in Windsor is teeming with wildlife, and everywhere you look you can see the Queen’s swans looking fittingly regal. There are plenty of different river tours and boat hire options to catch a stunning view of the castle from the water.
Another British staple is the PUB, and Windsor’s offerings were both adorable, and gave a nod to the Royal surroundings. We saw the Prince Harry pub, and the Duchess of Cambridge too.
The whole town still seemed to have a buzz about it following the Royal Wedding, and there was so much to see and do. I will definitely be heading back to Windsor very soon and can’t wait to have a look inside the castle grounds!
