Day trip to Windsor

Planning possible London trip next April-May. (Our 2nd time). Considering day trip to Windsor. Is National Rail Best site to book? If we go, will stay at Rubens on Buckingham Palace Rd. Seems like Waterloo would be be closer than Paddington? Thank you.

Yes Waterloo to Windsor and Eton riverside.

Victoria station is nearest to your hotel, if you leave from there change to a Windsor train at Clapham Junction.

Sit at the front of the train from Victoria for an easy change.

No need to book tickets on line as this is a commuter route. Buy the tickets on the day or a day beforehand.

Try not to visit on a Sunday, as you will not be able to wander around the magnificent St. George's Chapel.

Also check the official website for possible Castle closures in May-June. There are usually a few.
