London 23

London Episode 23 Windsor and Eton

The number one day trip from central London

Windsor: a thousand years of English history. We discuss everything from Edward III’s Order of the Garter to Edward VII’s new bathrooms, via the purchase of 40 Canalettos by George III and Christmas at Windsor for Victoria, Albert and their children. We visit the royal tombs in the chapel, take an idyllic boat trip up the Thames and pop over the bridge to Eton, home of England’s very poshest school.
