National Attractions

Right on our doorstep...


Two of the UK's most popular visitor attractions are in easy reach of Reading. 

Windsor Castle and all the charms of Windsor and next door neighbour Eton are a 20-minute drive away (or an easy train journey via Slough). Legoland is about the same distance by car or take a shuttle-bus from Windsor. 

NB Legoland is a seasonal attraction.  Windsor Castle is open all year round, but with restricted access when the Queen is in residence.

The Castle covers an area of about 5 hectares (13 acres) and contains magnificent State Apartments furnished with treasures from the Royal Collection, St George's Chapel (burial place of 10 monarchs), and Queen Mary's Dolls House, a masterpiece in miniature. As Windsor Castle is a working royal palace, opening arrangements may change at short notice. Please check before planning a visit.
