Weekend Getaways from Windsor
When I was a boy we used to go camping by the seaside, it wasn't wild camping because we stayed on a campsite. My parents considered camping to be a cheap holiday or weekend break sometimes, campsites are cheaper than hotels or even B&B's so if you don't mind roughing it a bit you can enjoy a break very economically but you will still have access to showers and toilets. Wild camping is a bit different, with wild camping you probably won't have access to shops, toilet blocks or showers.Why Wild CampingI enjoyed my first wild camping trip and I think you should give it a go too. You maybe asking yourself why you should leave all the comforts you are used to. You should leave your creature comforts and go camping in the wild because; camping in the great outdoors is a great way to lose the stresses of everyday life, get away from pollution, connect with nature and find your inner self. The thing I like about camping is that once you have all your stuff together you can just go, no need to book flights or hotels. Camping can be done at the drop of a hat.Preparation If you are camping on a site or at a festival and find you have forgotten your torch or something you will probably be able to find a shop that sells it, if you have forgotten your stove or teabags you will probably find a pub or cafe nearby. Camping in the wild is a little different from camping on a site, before leaving on a wild camping trip you need to ensure you have everything required to survive in the wild. Even survival experts prepare before their wild camping trips.In the army they have a saying, “proper preparation prevents poor performance” they call it the “five P rule” and the army know a thing or two about camping out in the wild. In the scouts they say, “be prepared” and the scouts know a bit about wild camping too. In this post we are going to tell you the basics that you will need on your first wild camping trip, we will give you some advice on what to look for when shopping for it too.A TentYou may think this an obvious requirement but not all tents are created equally. The right tent can make all the difference between a peaceful nights sleep away from the hussle and bussle of urban life or a wet, cold and restless night wishing you had never left the comforts of home. When choosing a tent ensure it is wind, water and insect proof. The waterproof rating of tents is called the hydrostatic head, in the U.K it is illegal to call something a tent if it does not have a hydrostatic head of 1000mm or more. The bigger the number the more waterproof the tent, I looked for a hydrostatic head of at least 3000mm when choosing my tent.The NatureHike Cloud Up is a good choice for lone campers like me. On a par with far more expensive brands, this tent has a waterproof rating which starts at 3000mm, silicone taped seams, it's lightweight and insect proof. The tent boasts a mesh lining and sewn in groundsheet which will prevent anything crawling in. The below video helped me to choose my tent.

How To Reach Windsor
Book Windsor Tour Package
Clicking a picture with the royal guard at the Windsor castle who was oh so co operating to give that wide smile. Sitting in Nero's at Oxford Street the whole afternoon while sipping on coffee and reading a book and ending up chitchatting with Nancy for hours, who was sitting just beside and we got talking cuz she got curious enough to ask me whether Im a Jeffrey Archer fan or not. Eating at Nandos.
Queen Mary's Doll House
From the State House Apartments we went to see Queen Mary's Doll House... It was so cute with the amazing detailing. The Doll house depicts how a royal family might have lived through a beautiful collection of miniature figurines. It even has running water running through the tiny pipes. Photographs are not allowed indoors.
Royal Windsor Racecourse
The next destination to head to is the Windsor Racecourse for Monday races. It can qualify as one of the best evening watching the horse racing. The easiest and most fun way to get there is by boat. If you are lucky, you might just win enough to pay for an extended trip in the city.
St. George's Chapel
Next we went to St Georges Chapel which is also on the castle grounds. Its beautiful with Gothic architecture. All the knights are assigned a stall in the chapel choir above which his or her heraldic devices are displayed. After death, the stall plates, however, are not removed; they remain permanently affixed, so the stalls of the chapel are filled with a colorful record of the members throughout history.
