Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world, and the Queen of England’s favourite. Embrace the wind in your hair as you tour along the river bank. Lap up the freedom as you pass the sights and take in riverside life. Ring the bell and wave to passers-by and feel a million miles away from London.
Located on a scenic cliff-top location above the River Thames, this is the perfect destination for this gentle bike tour. After meeting at Windsor & Eton Riverside station, you will jump on board the comfy bikes to begin the tour. Each bike comes with a bell and optional basket which is perfect for resting your coat or keeping your camera close to hand. All of the bikes are single gear, highlighting just how flat and relaxing the routes are. With a comfy leather saddle and handlebars, you're sure to be in for a smooth ride and easy cruising.
