Upon arrival in Windsor, our tour group will be checking in to the Mercure Windsor Castle Hotel, where Hubby and I stayed two years ago. The hotel looks out upon Windsor Castle, the rooms are gorgeous, the bar is lined with windows and is supremely atmospheric and there’s a portrait of the Duke of Wellington just off the lobby. What could be more perfect? As regular readers of this blog will know, Windsor will always mean our dear friend Hester Davenport for myself and Victoria. Windsor is a wonderful town – just the right size, full of history – even Hubby loved it during our tour to England two Decembers ago. Here is a lovely, four minute video featuring highlights in Windsor.
Windsor is filled with great sights, including the Guildhall and Crooked House above, Peascod Street, the playing fields of Eton and the River Thames, upon which we’ll be ending our tour of Windsor with a boat cruise on the River.
