Driving from London to Windsor

Driving from London to Windsor is quick and easy, but with good rail services we recommend taking the train instead. There are less likely to be delays on the trains than if driving from London and taking the busy M4 motorway, specially if travelling at peak times.

London to Windsor: Distance & Journey Times

Windsor is about 25 miles due west of central London, and the driving time should be about 40-50 minutes, depending on time of day and traffic conditions. Take the A4 and then the M4 west, leave the M4 at Junction 6 and follow signs for Windsor.

Driving to Windsor from London: Parking

Look for the 'P' for parking signs as you approach Windsor, and use one of the official Long-Stay Car Parks. Another option if you also wanted to visit Legoland would be to park at Legoland and take the official Park and Ride service from Legoland to Windsor, which helps keep traffic out of the busy town centre. Legoland is only three miles from the centre of Windsor. There is a small fee for car parking at Legoland but it is cheaper than car parks in Windsor even when adding in the cost of the fare for the Park and Ride service.
