Living in the Royal Borough of Windsor

18 May, 2018

The royal wedding is upon us, and Windsor is gearing up for the celebrations. The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead council are preparing to festoon the town with bunting and banners, whilst the couple’s chosen florist will be foraging the meadows of Windsor Great Park for wildflowers and foliage for the floral displays in the chapel.

With the buzz and excitement about the upcoming nuptials on everyone’s mind, we thought we’d have a closer look into Windsor and what it can offer those who are relocating to the UK.

 

A unique, historic royal town with a cosmopolitan twist, Windsor is a favourite for top schools, high quality pedestrianised shopping and excellent transport links, with the average commute time to London Paddington being 29 minutes.

In terms of property, Windsor offers something for everyone, from period cottages to elegant Georgian homes, Victorian terraces, thirties and more modern houses, plus a plethora of modern, riverside apartments.

With a strong local market and so much to offer, Windsor is a town where families put down roots. The average costs of living in Windsor, both buying and renting, are as follows:

1 bedroom flat: £312,000 or £1,258 per month

2 bedroom flat: £394,000 or £1,447 per month

3 bedroom house: £582,000 or £1,920 per month

4 bedroom house: £888,000 or £3,091 per month

 Estate agent Charles Elsmore-Wickens of Savills, says at least a third of his buyers have left London for Windsor, enticed by its history and royal connections, the river, easy access back in to the capital and Heathrow airport.

Education standards are extremely high in the national league tables and schooling in Windsor provides an excellent start for most children in primary, secondary, state and private schools.
