We can’t wait to welcome you to the Royal Windsor Triathlon on Sunday 9th June – and neither can the historic riverside town itself!

With a picturesque setting and bustling energy, Windsor invites you to make the most of your weekend both before and after the event. We recommend racking your bike early on Saturday, and then planning some of the following activities to make your weekend even more memorable.

Let’s check out the exciting things to do and see in Windsor over the epic weekend!

Picnic in Great Windsor Park

As part of the Windsor Estate and the iconic Long Walk, Great Windsor Park is perfect for a scenic stroll and picnic with the family. If you love nature, why not visit the Savill Garden or simply soak up the historical setting spanning over 1000 years of resident royalty.

There are two cafes in Great Windsor Park but the Obelisk Pond and Virginia Water Lake provide a lovely backdrop to a picnic.

What’s more, on Saturday 8th June Ascot Carriages are organising carriage rides in Windsor Great Park. Book your ticket in advance here.

Smell the Roses at the Royal Windsor Flower Show

The 117th Royal Windsor Flower Show is a one-day event that inspires people to reconnect with nature, gardening, crafts, food and more. It is set in the prestigious grounds of the Great Windsor Park and showcases spectacular gardens and plants.

There are also great speakers, competition marquees and delicious food and entertainment for all ages and abilities.

Be a Big Kid at Legoland!

Visit the immersive world of childhood wonder and nostalgia for kids and adults alike at Legoland Windsor. Little ones and big ones will love the interactive rides, live shows and attractions – including a new duelling roller coaster that not only races forward but also in reverse. Sounds almost as exhilarating as a triathlon…

Enjoy a slap up meal

Windsor is home to many independent and chain pubs and restaurants, many of which are nestled into the charming historic town setting. From budget options to Michelin star restaurants, there’s something to tickle everyone’s fancy.

We particularly love the pub scene in Windsor, our top contenders being The George, The Boatman and Brewers Inn!

Get a Slice of Posh at Eton Museum

There are three museums in the historic grounds of Eton College: The Natural History Museum, the Museum of Antiquities and the Museum of Eton Life. The Natural History Museum and the Museum of Antiquities are open on Sunday while the Museum of Eton Life is also now open on Saturdays 2:30pm to 5pm. All museums are free and are a fascinating way to spend the day.

We hope this has given you some ideas on how to make the most of your event weekend and enjoy just some of what Windsor has to offer!
