After parking in Meadow Lane car park and visiting Windsor(its ten minute walk over the bridge), on returning to Eton, we walked the route through the town and through the Brocas, along the river back to the car park. Local park, people walking their dogs,...More

Just across the river from Windsor Castle with some good views. Not much else to see unless there is an event on; such as the annual fair. There are better places for a walk and not much else to see or do!

Even if you're short of time it's worth crossing over the river and wandering along the Brocas by the river if only to pause and look back at the views of the castle. If you have longer to spare you can start at the Brocas...More
