Baths Island & River Thames - Windsor visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Baths Island & River Thames' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Berkshire.
From the eastern end of Baths Island in Windsor there are great views down the River Thames towards Windsor Castle and The Promenade. On the opposite bank lies The Brocas and Eton. As can be seen in this 360° panorama, the river is very popular on sunny days, often lined with various canal boats and leisure boat. For visitors, small motor boats and rowing boats can be hired at The Promenade, close to Windsor Town Bridge, where river cruises also depart.
Baths Island and associated park cover some 4.4 hectares, next to Windsor Leisure Centre. Crossing over the island is Bowstring Bridge, one of the longest brick viaducts in the world built by Brunel. On the island are picnic tables, but no toilets. However, at the west end of the pleasure park is the Windsor Leisure Centre. It is a short walk along the river to the town centre and Alexander Gardens.
