As part of Heritage Open Days and the Autumn Windsor Festival and Fringe, we are offering a trail that you can enjoy completely digitally from the comfort of your own home, or in person, where you can physically view all sites mentioned from public rights-of-way.
Eton College was founded by Henry VI in 1440 and has grown to become the size of a small town, with over 1000 staff and 500 buildings spread over one square kilometre. As a result, there are an infinite number of stories hidden in the stones of the buildings that make up the college, many of which are waiting to be explored. This trail will not be an exhaustive summary of all the notable buildings in Eton, but rather a walk that includes a range of architectural structures of various ages, styles and materials. We hope it will enable you to find out more about some of the most well-known buildings but also prompt you to explore some less familiar corners.
