Mini guide to Eton

     

Eton, a historic town across the River Thames from Windsor and just 30kms from London, is famous for Eton College and boasts an atmospheric high street complete with beautifully preserved buildings and medieval shop fronts. Close by are the popular attractions of Windsor Castle and Legoland.

Eton College is the second oldest public school in England, having been founded by King Henry VI in 1440. Most people come to Eton to wander around the cobbled school yard, chapel and museum, and to generally soak up the historical and privileged atmosphere. The High street is famous for its well preserved buildings housing a diverse range of shops selling antiques, jewellery, books and specialist clothing, all with the unique personal service of a bygone era.

Eton is also home to two 19th century churches, namely St John the Evangelist and St John the Baptist, consecrated in 1854 and 1867 respectively. The Thames Path is a popular walk along the River Thames leading from the end of Brocas street.

Eton and nearby Windsor are home to a huge variety of restaurants, with more than a dozen varieties of cuisine to choose from. Most of Eton's restaurants and pubs are concentrated along the High street, along with a wealth of shopping opportunities.

Numerous attractions, including Windsor Castle, one of the Queen's three official residences and the largest continually occupied castle in the world, can be found in Eton. Legoland boasts over 50 rides and attractions and is set in 150 acres of scenic parkland; while Ascot Racecourse, the meadow of Runnymede, where King John sealed the Magna Carta in 1215, and Windsor's Theatre Royal are all popular nearby visitor attractions.

Eton enjoys easy access to the M4 (junction 6) and M25 motorways and is just a five-minute drive from Windsor. Regular train services connect London with both Windsor Central Station and Windsor and Eton Riverside Station, while the famous Green Line express coaches run regular services between London Victoria and Windsor. Heathrow Airport is only 15 minutes away by car.
