London to Windsor
by Train

The best way of getting from London to Windsor is by train. There are two different routes from either Paddington or Waterloo stations in London, and they have different advantages. Neither is better than the other, so our advice is to choose whichever station is easiest for you to get to.

Windsor Castle from the River Thames

London to Windsor by Train from Waterloo

Trains to Windsor from London's Waterloo Station take just under an hour and arrive at Windsor and Eton Riverside Station, a few minutes walk from Windsor Castle. There are two trains an hour from early morning to late at night and the advantage is that trains go direct without requiring changes. The cost of the fare is not expensive: see the links below to check current times and prices.

To Windsor by Train from Paddington

It's quicker to get to Windsor by train from Paddington Station, with 2-3 trains an hour and a journey time of about 30-40 minutes depending on the train. The disadvantage is that you have to change trains at Slough. These trains arrive at Windsor Central Station, which is also just a few minutes away from Windsor Castle and the centre of town. Fare prices are similar to the Waterloo-Windsor service.
