Jubilee River, Eton Dorney

This splendid family-friendly circuit takes in Windsor Castle, Eton College, Dorney Lake, the Jubilee River and the River Thames.

This splendid family-friendly circuit takes in Windsor Castle, Eton College, Dorney Lake, the Jubilee River and the River Thames.

Easily accessed from railway stations at Slough and Maidenhead (from London Paddington) and Windsor and Eton Riverside (from London Waterloo), it is ideal for those looking for a day out from London.

The Jubilee River is a seven-mile-long man-made flood channel running between Maidenhead and Windsor. It provides a haven for fish, birds, animals and people including the Dorney Wetlands, an area specially created to provide a superb breeding and feeding habitat for many bird species. A well-surfaced three-meter-wide path follows its entire length, with most of this being available to cyclists.
