UPDATE ***It has been brought to our attention that the 9:50 train from Paddington may no longer be bookable as they have run out of socially distanced seat reservations. If you are yet to book your tickets and you run into this problem we would recommend:

Getting the 9:20 train from Paddington to Windsor and Eton Central and waiting for 20 minutes

Getting the 9:28 train from Waterloo to Windsor and Eton Riverside and meeting the group at 51.482992, -0.607960  (51°28’58.8”N 0°36’28.7”W, near Windsor Wine and Gifts***

For the fourth consecutive year, we continue to conquer the English countryside in posh Berkshire. This is a circular walk in Windsor, where we will follow the scenic Thames Path and view pretty riverboats and pop by the Magna Carta Monument. At the later part of the walk, we will cut through the great Windsor parks before walking down the long aisle Harry & Meghan did at their wedding to the great Windsor Castle.
