How far is Windsor from London?
It’s just 26 miles from London. You can easily get from London to Windsor by train, car or by taxi. In my opinion taking a train will be more convenient. If you come by car, finding a place to park in peak time will be challenging!

From March –October door opens at 10am and closes at 5.15pm. There will be long queue to enter the castle. Better go early enough to escape the queue.
