We imagine there are many ways to go from London to Windsor. We went by train. From London Waterloo Station we rode to Slough and there caught another train to Windsor & Eton. The whole trip did not take long; some pamphlets advertise it as a fifty five minutes ride, others set it as low as thirty minutes. We did not keep track of time. Still, it was less than an hour altogether.

Catching a train in London is as straight foward as it can be. Go to the station, buy the ticket, find the platform, get on the train. On the stations we used they have overhead TV that tell the platform, where the train is going and the time of departure. The people we dealt with at the ticket window were extremely courteos and helpful in indicating what we had to do. There were also information booths thruout the stations and the people there were also very helpful.

Windsor & Eton are tourist destinations. From what we understand in summer some places there could get a little crowded. When we went in October there were tourists, but just enough to give life to the place without having to wait in long lines. The train station is rather big with many restaurants and stores. We had breakfast there, it was a very early start that day, and then lunch.

As we got out of the station there was Windsor Castle in front of us. The Thames is just a few blocks away. The other bank of the river is Eton.

Returning to London was as easy as gong to Windsor. Find out the time and platform, get on the train, change trains at Slough, and get down in London.

In all we went on three trips in train to destinations outside of London. All the trains were on time. There are signs everywhere it is needed and then there are even more signs. A loudspeaker in the trains did tell us which one was the coming stop.

Watch out for short platforms if riding in the back of long trains. Some stations have platforms that are not as long as the train. In one of such case the doors on the cars beyond the platform length did not open. That was not the case neither at Slough or Windsor and Eton Central.
