Windsor is extremely convenient for Heathrow, M4, M3 and M25,
with easy access
to London via public transport, having two mainline train stations serving London Waterloo and London Paddington stations, as well as direct bus services to Heathrow and London. We always recommend to our guests to stay in Windsor and travel by train into London to explore the City. A cheaper and far more relaxing option.
Parking can be difficult, especially on summer weekends. See our guide to parking

Taxi From Heathrow
The easiest way to reach Windsor from Heathrow is by taxi. London black cabs are available from outside the terminal building but these will cost in excess of £50 for the trip. The method I personally use is to phone a Windsor local taxi company called "Five Star". Phone from the arrivals hall whilst waiting for your
luggage to arrive, they will then meet you outside the terminal building; cost for the trip is approximately £16.00 (price in year 2012). Phone them on 01753 858888 and they will describe where to meet the taxi. They are by far the most reliable taxi company in Windsor. Distance from Heathrow to Windsor 12 miles approx. Time for this journey is dependant on traffic, but can be 20 minutes to 45 minutes in rush hour.
Train from Gatwick to London
Take train to Clapham Junction, change for Windsor and Eton Riverside. Approx 1 1/2 hours
