Old Windsor Area Guide
Situated 3 miles South East of Windsor and close to Datchet, Old Windsor has a rich history of its own having been the site of a Palace for Saxon Kings before the existence of Windsor Castle. The River Thames prominently runs along the banks of the village with the back drop of Windsor Great Park and nearby Runnymede offering several hectares of open parkland for the public.
This pretty village offers a fabulous selection of homes of different styles and sizes with some riverside properties.
The M25 is conveniently located at the other side of Runnymede which links to both the M4 and M3 Motorways, and is in close proximity to London Heathrow Airport.
The local schools King's Court First School and St Peter's C of E Middle School are well regarded and secondary education is available close by in Windsor.
