Details

History is boring right ? The biggest bit of history, concerning Windsor, is its castle. Wrong on both counts, we will talk about the castle of course but this tour takes in a lot of different points of interest as diverse as The Wild Geese, the great railway race, pop bands ranging from the Stones and the Who through to the mighty Splodgenessabounds, 2 strange post boxes, Eton College, famous victorian homosexuals, 4 different ghosts, the origins of Windsor Castle, Charles IIs secret passage, the leaning building of Windsor, Sir Christopher Wrens great hoax, Charles I's death warrant and the beginnings of speed dating. The walk will be at a gentle pace, with frequent stops, totalling about 5 miles and the end of the walk there is the option of a reasonably priced lunch at Wetherspoons and parking in the home park ( recommended ) is free.
