Windsor’s most famous resident being the Queen herself, it should come as no surprise that the town is the home of some of UK’s wealthiest and most famous celebrities. With more than 850 dollar millionaires, the highest average income per household and the highest house prices outside London, Windsor is, as one would expect, a truly outstanding place. Some of Windsor’s most famous residents include Elton John, singer Natalie Imbruglia, and many other musicians and actors.
But what do people do in Windsor? Of course, to entertain such a crowd, the town offers quality amenities, numerous attractions, world-class events and many wonderful opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. The world-famous Windsor Castle is open to visitors and is the perfect place for a cultural outing, as it features Queen Mary’s Doll house, regular exhibitions at the Drawings Gallery, and of course some beautiful and informative tours of the castle itself. If you are looking for something fun, why not try Legoland Windsor Resort, featuring over 55 rides and attractions… a truly magical experience for children. If you enjoy walks, cycling, horse riding, golf or many other outdoor activities, you have definitely come to the right place, as the Royal Borough has a network of over 300km of public rights of way all over the outstanding countryside.
Shopping options include a wide range of high street retailers, designer labels, department stores, antique shops and lovely specialist and souvenir shops, all in the historical heart of the Royal Borough. Whether you like fashion, jewellery, art shops, flowers or less specific shopping centres, you will never get tired of the “Windsor Shopping Experience”!
Windsor also has a lot to offer to those who enjoy fitness and healthy living, and features some of the best leisure centres and spas in Britain, for your relaxing pampering sessions when you move there.
As one would expect, schools in Windsor and Maidenhead are outstanding, their facilities are among the best and there are many to choose from. In the primary schools of Oldfield, Bisham CofE and the Lowbrook Academy, 100% of pupils achieved a Level 4 or above in English and Maths in 2012!
Of course, house prices in the area mean that it is not a place for everyone, but if you can afford it, moving to Windsor really is worth it. Some will argue that being constantly filled with tourists, Windsor can get a little tedious for homeowners, but what town could bring together so many advantages without a single drawback?
