I’ve just returned home after a fun-filled weekend of wedding celebrations in the quaint but quirky town of Windsor. Heading down there the day before the ceremony, I allowed myself enough time to do a bit of sightseeing and I’m so pleased I did. If you’re a fan of dogs, pretty pubs and cobbled streets then Windsor is definitely a bit of you.
My outfit of choice was a floral print midi dress from the core range at New Look (£29.99) but it was more of a maxi on me, so I paired it with my trusty black heeled boots (& other stories £125) to give me some added height. I thought the dress would be massive on me but it was actually a really comfortable fit.
We started our day off by taking a quick mooch around the old town where we stumbled across some unique boutiques nestled amongst the various historic buildings.
Things brightened up at lunch time when the Sun made an appearance so we took a wander up to the castle (a LONG wander). Unfortunately we didn’t get to meet our gal Liz as the special flag wasn’t up, meaning she isn’t currently residing there (but she does at certain times of the year according to Google). Luckily, the oncoming flurry of dogs kept our spirits up as we embarked upon our mission to reach the castle gates.
After our lovely little jaunt up to the royal quarters we stopped off at gorgeous nearby pub, The Two Brewers. I highly recommend this place for a post castle pint, or a tea time Gin and Tonic- whatever floats your boat. We sat in the sunshine and had a bit of a natter with the people sat on the table behind ours. Such a friendly place, I’m already planning a return trip 🙂
