Soak up the Great British pomp of Eton

Along with its Thames-side bigger brother, Windsor, Eton is a great example of beautiful, historical Britain, with all its pomp and ceremony. Although quieter than Windsor, it is still awash with culture. The high street, which features antique shops and art galleries, was once used as part of royal processions from Westminster to Windsor. And of course, it is home to the legendary Eton College, possibly the most famous public school in the world, where many royals, future prime ministers and celebrities were educated. Schoolboys can be seen wandering the high street in their traditional formal tailcoats.
