How to get to Windsor to watch the Royal Wedding on Friday – London Waterloo and Paddington train times for Windsor & Eton Riverside

But if you're keen to see the bride and groom in the flesh after they've tied the knot at St George's Chapel, we've put together the best ways for you to get to Windsor.

How do you get to Windsor by train?

If you're travelling to get a glimpse of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank during their wedding procession, the easiest way to get there from London is to get a train to one of Windsor's two stations.

South Western Railway will be operating its usual service, which runs from London Waterloo to Windsor and Eton Riverside.

A spokesperson told HuffPost UK that there will be no extra services on the day, but commuters have been warned about trains being busier than usual.

Alternatively, you can travel to Windsor and Eton Central from London Paddington on the Great Western Railway service.

GWR are operating a train to Windsor every 20 minutes.

Those travelling from Reading should jump on a train to Slough and change there.

If you're travelling from Manchester you have both options open to you – Virgin run a direct train to London, whilst Cross Country run a direct service into Reading.

While travelling to Windsor via Reading takes slightly longer it only involves one change, and cuts out the hassle of crossing London on the tube.

Can I drive to Windsor for the Royal Wedding?

You can drive to Windsor for Eugenie and Jack's nuptials but there will be no official parking provided by the local authority.

Royal fans have just three long-stay car parks to choose from, at Datchet Road, Windsor & Eton Riverside Station and on Alma Road, next to the coach park.

These car parks are expected to be exceptionally busy, so you'll want to set out early.

If you're travelling from central London the fastest route is down the A4 onto the M4 to junction 6 before coming of the motorway to join the A355 and heading onto the A308, according to Google Maps.

The journey should take just over an hour.

Alternatively you can use the A40 to connect to the M4 for the start of your journey, which is estimated to take around an hour and a half.

If you're travelling from north west of Windsor for the Royal Wedding, the quickest way to get to Windsor is to connect to the M40 and exit at Junction 4 for the A404 to join the M4 until junction 6 for the A355 and A308.

Travellers from north east of Windsor can take the A1(M) then the M25 to join onto the M4 for the A355 and A308, or alternatively they can use the M11 to connect to the M25 or the North Circular in central London.

Many of the roads in central Windsor are closed for the Royal Wedding, meaning driving into the centre of town is not an option.


How do you get to Windsor by bus?

The regular N8/8 bus that runs between Heathrow Airport and Slough via Windsor should be running.

You can also travel on a National Express coach.

Coming from London? You'll want to catch the 7am service to have time to find a prime viewing spot.

If you fancy travelling from Manchester by coach on the day you'll be faced with a 0.15am pickup to make it down the country in time for a connection at London Victoria to arrive in time for the procession.
