A honeymoon in Windsor

Tips for a wonderful newlywed holiday in this famous town in Royal Berkshire

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead rightly carries with it a reputation for luxury and majesty. Thanks to be the nominal home of the royal family, and one of the south of England’s most popular weekend break spots, Royal Windsor is also an excellent spot for a refined honeymoon.

We’ve been working with European hoteliers Millennium Hotels to gain a deeper insight into the Windsor hotels and activities on offer to newlywed couples looking for a decadent and sleek break following their nuptials.

Windsor is famous for its royal landmarks such as the changing of the guard, Saville Gardens and, of course, Windsor Castle. Easily reachable by Millennium’s Slough-Windsor property, it is more than a destination – it’s a view! The castle is a perfect place to visit on a summer evening, as the low light in the sky casts a pink-orange glow on the castle, especially when viewed from the Long Walk.

Indeed, Windsor is gorgeous for walking, and soaking up some of the royal history of the area. Snow Hill and the Copper Horse – a statue of King George III on horseback – provides one of the most sumptuous views of the borough, and may well have you wanting to propose all over again!

However, as well as spending days secluded in the hotel itself simply admiring all that Windsor could have to offer, if you’re hoping to have a week or longer for your honeymoon, the Millennium Hotel is an excellent spot from which to explore the rest of the borough, which includes Eton, Ascot and Maidenhead.

Ascot Racecourse is undoubtedly one of the most romantic and refined spots in the area, and with Royal Ascot taking place on the penultimate week of June (from Tuesday 19th to Saturday 23rd), it is the ultimate spot for some post-wedding luxury.

You can purchase a box or special viewing package for Ascot, including champagne service as well as that added bit of peace and quiet.

Similarly, if you’re not about for the Royal Ascot races, there is also the Royal Windsor Racecourse to admire, which is more closely located to the hotel. As with Royal Ascot, tours and visitations are available throughout the year.

Indeed with its low-lying land and verdant grasses and pastures, Windsor is an excellent spot to try some horse-riding for yourself…nothing says I love you like trying to look gallant on a run-away horse!
