Not only does Windsor give its inhabitants a quick rail route for working in the Capital (Paddington via Slough in under 30 minutes and Waterloo in 55 minutes) there are also other local employment hubs nearby at Slough, Maidenhead, and Reading.
Just because you live close to the city does not mean you have to compromise on green space. The ever-changing landscape of Windsor Great Park is home to an incredible array of flora and wildlife, making it a great place to explore nature’s beauty, no matter what time of year. Thanks to its tourist trade, Windsor is filled with expensive boutiques, grand cafes, and chic restaurants.
