Royal Wedding Travel Guide: Getting to Windsor

There will be clearly signed walking routes through Windsor on Harry and Meghan"s big day. 

Here"s a guide for all the other transport you may need to know about ahead of the day. 


Customers have been advised to catch an early train and allow plenty of time for their journey.

South Western Railway will be doubling their train services from London Waterloo to Windsor & Eton Riverside.

Four direct 10-carriage trains will be running every hour at  XX:20, XX:28, XX:50 and XX:58.

Queueing services will be in place at some of the key stations, including: London Waterloo, Clapham Junction, Paddington, Staines and Slough.

Extra teams of Network Rail engineers will be working on the day to make sure services run smoothly.

For those leaving Windsor there will be a queuing system in place at both Windsor & Eton Riverside and Windsor & Eton Central.


If you"re coming into Windsor from the M25, you"ll need to take the signed diversion route from the Runnymede roundabout along the A30 towards Egham.

Security has been stationed around Windsor so expect delays as you may be stopped by police.

When you arrive at Windsor, there will be 6,000 parking spaces available at the Review Ground.

The spot, located at Windsor Great Park, is off the A332 on Sheet Street Road and is accessible from 4am.

The lot is a 15-20 minute walk from the nearest spectator area (Long Walk).

Be sure to book in advance - a £30 charge applies.

Provisions will be made for those with blue badge permits.

You can also book a space at the park and float car park at the Windsor Racecourse.

Parking is also available at The Windsors Boys" School but it"s first come first served. 

It"s advised that anyone who has not pre-booked parking should avoid driving into central Windsor.


A designated pick up and drop off point will be set up for buses travelling in to and out of Windsor at St Leonards Road.


The easiest route into the town is via the National Cycle Route 4 (NCN4).

Bike racks are expected to be busy but temporary racks will be set up at the Review Ground.

Cycling is permitted along the Long Walk for those travelling on bike.

No bikes are allowed in the public viewing areas and cyclists are being asked to push their bikes when in the crowd.

When you"ve arrived, you can catch the ceremony on the big screen on The Long Walk or Alexandra Gardens and watch Megan and Harry tie the knot - along with the 100,000 people expected to be in Windsor.

You"ll also be able to watch the royal couple take a carriage tour through Windsor from Castle Hill, High Street, Sheet Street, Kings Road, Albert Road and The Long Walk.

There are three disabled viewing points along the route as well.
