About Eton

Situated just over the river Thames from Windsor, Eton is best known for its world famous ancient public school, which was attended by both Prince Harry and William, and many former British Prime Ministers. Apart from its strong rowing tradition, Eton is also famous for the 'Eton Wall Game', which is a hybrid of rugby and football and dates back to before 1766.
Eton is well worth a visit, especially when visiting Windsor, as it is just a short walk across the Thames via Windsor Bridge.
