A Trip to Windsor #6 :: Trains, Planes & no Automobiles

Hi there everyone 😀

Welcome to the last in the series of posts from our trip to Windsor back in February. It seems such a long time ago now. I'm so glad we went as we've had to cancel our two spring breaks to Scotland and to Yorkshire and we are not away now until September, which seems like forever away.

Having seen all of the major sights ... The Changing of the Guard, The Eton Walkway and The Castle ... we made our last full day in Windsor a nice and slow one with a late start followed by a trains, planes and no automobiles wander.

We started out in the opposite direction to normal ... not heading for the High Street, but out the back way, passing the Office of The Duke of Edinburgh's Award and the very pretty Western Cottage ... I know, shame about the wheelie bins ...
We'd spotted an interesting looking statue in Bachelors Acre on a previous wandering and we started our walk off with a detour to have a closer look at what we now knew was 'The Windsor Lady' ...
From here we headed back into Central Station to have a closer look at the Queen's Train ...

From the station we headed along the platform for the footbridge and lift down into Alexandra Park Gardens ...

We were on the lookout for the Hawker Hurricane ... point 52 of interest on The Queen's Walkway ... and we were delighted to find it not too far away ...




After photographing it from every angle possible we made our way back along The Thames, with a quick look at The Jubilee Fountain ...
... before heading into Brown’s for a quick pitstop before heading back to The Courtyard for our Valentines' meal in.

Saturday morning and time to pack up and head for home. We were both sorry to leave our cosy apartment and it was the first time we’d actually got in the car since we’d arrived in Monday,

We’d had a fab break ... we’d both loved Windsor and our first Airbnb ... if you’ve not been then we would definitely recommend a visit ... especially if you can get to go out of season when it’s a bit quieter. It was a real treat ... now to get home and get cracking with 2020 ...

... if only we'd known what was just around the corner 😀
