Afternoon Tea in Windsor


Even the most dedicated of city dwellers benefits from a change of scenery now and again. So when the opportunity to take some time out in Windsor arose this Easter which was also to incorporate the taking of afternoon tea, we headed to Waterloo station to board our train.

Afternoon Tea has been a British tradition for over 200 years. Throughout London you can take tea in numerous hotels, restaurants and cafes. Whilst in Windsor, we partook of this tradition at the Macdonald Windsor Hotel. The hotel is situated opposite the impressive and imposing Windsor Castle and provided a relaxing retreat particularly from the heavy rain and storms we've been experiencing of late. The flag at the castle was raised which meant that the Queen was in residence.

For those who are in need of retail therapy, you'll find a wide range of  high street shops such as H&M, T.K.maxx, Office to mention a few as well as department stores, Waitrose and much more. Considering Windsor is fairly compact, they've managed to create an impressive shopping quarter. A walk along the river (River Thames) is a must too and you can feed the swans and ducks with bird food which can be purchased at the riverside kiosk. Eton College is visible in the distance from the riverbank.

So Windsor is a great place for a short break particularly if you're looking for somewhere steeped in tradition.
