Windsor and Eton.

Return road trip today with a stop off in Windsor and Eton.

Windsor is a town on the River Thames in southeast England and home to Windsor Castle, a residence of the British Royal Family.

As well as the castle, we took a quick look in Windsor parish church of St John The Baptist with its beautiful depiction of The Last Supper by Franz de Cleyn.

Eton is a town on the opposite bank of the River Thames to Windsor, connected to it by Windsor Bridge. It’s famous for it’s public school, Eton College.

The college was founded in 1440 by Henry VI. It has been attended by, among others, Princes Harry and William, prime ministers David Cameron and Boris Johnson and actor Eddie Redmayne.

Short break over and back home to Sussex, but nice to move inland and see a bit more of the culture and countryside that makes up the beautiful country of England.
