Things to do near Slough
Slough and its neighbouring areas have plenty to offer. Windsor Castle, most famous of the Royal residences and home to the British Monarchy outside London is simply not to be missed. Aside from a chance to view the magnificent State Apartments within the Castle, the Castle grounds offer beautiful walks and a chance to include a visit to St George’s Chapel, heralded as a gothic masterpiece, and site of the marriage of the Prince of Wales to Camilla Parker Bowles in 2005.
If sport’s your thing then head to Ascot, one of Britain’s most famous racecourses and another unmissable day out in Slough. If historic sites and horses aren’t to your taste, then a day out at Legoland Windsor is a suitably fun alternative. And if you want to carry on the fun, then you’ll find Slough is within easy reach of both Thorpe Park and Chessington World of Adventures too.
