How quaint to turn a railway station into an indoor shopping mall with lots of small outlets to while away the time and plenty of cafes to choose somewhere to eat. We always have a little meander around the Royal Waiting Room when we visit...More

Nice covered area to wait for the train from Windsor to Slough that operates every 20 minutes. Easy walking distance to the Windsor High Street and Windsor Castle.

Another part of the old railway buildings, the Royal waiting rooms have been converted into pleasant eating places and small independent outlets. The surprise is the old Royal Steam Train, a nice find.

Not only a really stunning area to browse the many boutique shops but every type of food, to suit all tastes. This is also the entrance to the mainline train station.

A delightful little shopping arcade full of treasures and unique finds. My husband love the speciality cigar shop and bought a Havana and we browsed through an Italian deli and spent for too much on truffles.

Lots of places to get a drink and browse for souvenirs. Toilets are available downstairs.Easy access to the castle and main street from here. The shops are all high end so not really for day trippers like us.

This converted railway station provides a grand architectural setting for some nice shops, nice and airy and welcoming, and situated right opposite the castle.
