Parking in Windsor

I am confused about which are the safe places to park in Windsor. I have read many warnings about clamping and other problems. I've also read that parking may be hard to find. Can anyone direct me? We would like to visit Windsor Castle on a Friday morning. It will be a day that the changing of the guard is happening.

Here is everything you need to know about parking in Windsor. Personally, I prefer the Edward VII car park, which is never full. Make sure you pay for the maximum amount of time. You always seem to use it up....

Click on the link in the article to be taken to a map of Windsor. If you click on the name of the car park underneath the picture, it will take you to a more detailed view of where that lot is, and the prices.

Good luck!

There are a lot of car parks around and they do start filling up quickly especially on Fridays and weekends. I've parked at King Edward Court and found the spaces very tight. Alma Road is a large car park and is about 10 minutes on foot to the castle. But there is also parking along the river and if you get there early you can bag one of those spaces. I have also parked at the main privately owned car park in the centre and never had any problems. There is also a car park opposite this one (which I think is not privately owned and only 2 minutes to the castle).

So in a nutshell get there early and you'll be fine.

@ OP--please don't confuse the King Edward Court parking with the King Edward VII car park. The first is a parking garage, which, as peppermint says, has *very* tight spaces. I hate parking there.

The latter is a large open air car park across from the Home park. It's a short but pleasant walk to the Castle.

I usually park in the King Edward Court but as others have pointed out the spaces can be very tight. If you park there be sure to keep the ticket you receive on entry since you pay when you exit.

Enjoy your stay in Windsor.

Parking is not that hard, but can be expensive short term....I got a day ticket cost ten pounds, then used the buses around the city.

The car parks linked with the shopping centre may be a good deal but floor numbering is a little confusing.

The car park in the shopping center will cost far more than the Edward VII car park.

There is really no need to take buses anywhere in Windsor; Windsor and Eton are all accessible by foot.

The bright red tour bus gets consistently poor reviews, and is overpriced for where it goes.

It is hardly worth waiting for a bus to go anywhere in Windsor since it is a small town. Indeed, as mentioned by LauraRW it is accessible on foot.
