Set a few miles from the centre of the town, Windsor offers racegoers the unique opportunity to reach the course via the Thames. A boat leaves regularly from near the train station direct to the course which is about as sedate a way to get to the races as you can get.
Apart from the trip down the river, Windsor is most renowned for its regular Monday evening meetings during the summer. They have an informal feel and attract a relaxed crowd.
Windsor offers purely flat racing, which is generally of good quality, although this winter they will temporarily revert to being a jumps course as they absorb some of Ascot's re-scheduled action.
