The town is situated 23 miles (37 km) west of Charing Cross, London, 7 miles (11 km) south east of Maidenhead, and 21 miles (34 km) east of Reading. It is immediately south of the River Thames, which forms its boundary with its ancient twin town of Eton.

In 1778, there was a resumption of the royal presence, with George III at the Queen's Lodge and, from 1804, at the castle. This started a period of new development in Windsor, with the building of two army barracks.

In the 18th c. the town traded with London selling the Windsor Chair which was actually made in Buckinghamshire.

In addition, several independent schools operate in the town, including:

Several other local sports clubs are based at Home Park, including: Hockey and archery clubs, and the Datchet Dashers running club.
