The world’s most spectacular event comes to London and The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead will host events for the third time. London hosted the Games of 1908 and 1948 with events taking place in Windsor on both occasions. 2012 brings the action to Eton Dorney Rowing Centre at Dorney Lake, set in a 400-acre park within a nature conservation area, acclaimed as one of the finest rowing venues in the world.
Hi! My name is Tina and I am as excited about the Games as everyone else is at the Sir Christopher Wren Hotel & Spa. A wee bit about our charming hotel: sheltering beneath the ramparts of Windsor Castle, the hotel enjoys a spectacular setting, overlooking the River Thames at Eton Bridge.
The main building holds a unique place in British heritage, and over the years it has been meticulously restored to offer guests the highest levels of comfort and service.
Today, Sir Christopher Wren offers 93 traditional and contemporary rooms, award-winning dining, and a modern gym and spa, as well as outstanding facilities for weddings, conferences and other events.
When you choose Sir Christopher Wren for your date with history at the Games, you are not only assured of a wonderful once-in-a-lifetime experience, but also bouquet sweet memories: the many attractions around, the legendary afternoon tea, the eye for detail that makes the little things come alive. All this and more awaits.
Oh, a little charming nugget about Windsor – Windsor is the largest inhabited castle in the world and the oldest royal residence to have remained in continuous use by the British Monarchy.
If that isn’t reason enough to visit, I don’t know what is!
