Windsor Castle car parking
CAR PARK CLAMPING WARNING
In past years press reports suggested that a privately run car park in River Street was 'over-zealous' in its use of wheel clamps. Visitors' cars were clamped for exceeding their allotted parking time, or parking slightly out of the marked bays. Fees to be released from the clamps were reported to be £120. Visitors to the nearby theatre were also clamped.
With the law now having been changed, we hope that this problem no longer arises.
Park and Ride at Legoland
Park and Ride at Legoland is free, but a charge is made for the bus into the town centre. The scheme is by far the cheapest and easiest parking option for the town centre although you should allow perhaps 30 minutes or more waiting and travel time for the bus.
The Park and Ride at Legoland is open all year round. Special LEGOLAND shuttle buses operate every half hour for most of the day but only when Legoland is open (late March to late October) when buses run every thirty minutes between 10am and 7pm. Stops are in Thames Street and in the High Street.
A bus service, 190, 191 and Green Line Coach Service 702 operate between LEGOLAND and central Windsor at the special Park & Ride Fares. These are long distant bus services that pass by Legoland on their scheduled routes.
Park and Ride at the Home Park
Two car parks adjacent to the Home Park are also served by a bus link at peak times.
Approaching King Edward Car Park from Arthur Road. Turn right at the roundabout ahead. This is probably the most convenient car park for disabled visitors due to its proximity to the castle and shopping streets, plus less need to climb up the hill around the castle.
The entrance to King Edward car park. Note the tight turn and narrow entrance before the service road. Not one of Windsor's most attractive areas!
Above. The car park in Victoria Street. Most convenient for shops in lower Peascod Street and St Leonards Road. The entrance is at the back of the car park
The car park at Alexandra Gardens accessed from Alma Road/Arthur Road traffic lights. This, with River Street Car Park near Windsor Bridge, is the most convenient car park for the riverside.
The far end of the car park at Windsor Leisure Centre, west of the town centre. Access from the junction in Maidenhead Road beside Windsor Boys School. Very convenient for the river, although it is a ten minute walk into the town centre.
