This is a beautiful and historic place to visit and is a favourite home of Queen Elizabeth II. Set in the midst of Windsor Great Park and on the banks of the Thames, Windsor town and the castle are well worth a visit. See the Queen's Dolls House, St. George's Chapel and the Grace & Favour houses gifted by the Queen to people who have done her a particular service. Stand on the Castle ramparts and look down on the playing fields of Eton.

Wisley Gardens, the headquarters of the Royal Horticultural Society is the most beautiful place to explore. If you are a keen gardener, please do take the time to visit and to look at the plantings, and do ask the staff for any advice you may need about your own garden. The restaurants are excellent and give you somewhere to sit and recuperate before you set off perhaps to the glass houses. If you have children with you, there's a brilliant children's corner which they will love. Please do take time out of your visit to go to Wisley, you'll love it!

Getting around the area
If you have a car, travel is simplified, but if not, we have bicycles you can borrow, or you can take a bus (timetable in your room) or catch a cab. Walking is great. The house is situated on a footpath which leads you onto the golf course in one direction, or through the woods and onto the Basingstoke Canal. To walk into Woking town centre takes approximately 20-25 minutes along the canal or along the road, and from Woking you can take the train to London, or to Portsmouth, or to Guildford which is our county town. So please go and explore, we're happy to help with recommendations for a truly fun and interesting day out.
