Although more practical to get to on foot, Eton is very near to Windsor just across the Thames river. It is arguably the most famous public school in the world and where Princes William and Harry recently attended school. In fact, from Windsor Castle's ramparts, you can look down on the river and onto the famous playing fields of Eton. The school was founded by 18-year-old Henry VI in 1440 and some of England's greatest men were educated here, notably 20 prime ministers, the Duke of Wellington, literary figures such as George Orwell, Aldous Huxley, Ian Fleming and Percy Bysshe Shelley.

Nearby, Windsor Great Park is the perfect place for picnics, walking, cycling and horse riding. Within Windsor Great Park, Savill Garden covers some 35 acres and is considered to be the finest of its type in the northern temperate region of the world. Beyond this enormous park you can seek out the field where the Magna Carta was signed in the 13th century. A monument marks the spot today.

Also close by is the village of Dorney, where the 15th century Dorney Court has a fascinating collection of 15th and 16th century oak furniture. Dorney is the ancient word for 'island of bees' and the village is famous for its honey which is still produced today.
Just north of Windsor is Chalfont St. Giles, where poet John Milton lived during the Great Plague in 1665. Here, the 16th century John Milton's Cottage is the site where the great poet completed 'Paradise Lost' and started 'Paradise Regained'. Its four rooms contain many relics and exhibits devoted to Milton.

Meanwhile, Cliveden House, a National Trust property and former home of Lady Astor, stands on a constructed terrace of mature gardens high above the Thames. The estate's original mansion and sweeping lawns were created in 1666 for the second Duke of Buckingham. Later, the father of King George III reared his sons here.
