Windsor town centre continues to be exceptionally busy as we approach the day of the Her Majesty the Queen’s funeral and committal service.
Car parks are filling up each day in the build up to Monday’s funeral and committal service, leaving parking in the town extremely limited. On Monday, we expect car parks to fill up at a very early part of the day, with public transport also extremely busy throughout.
The committal service in St George’s Chapel in Windsor, as well as the funeral in London will be televised live, but if you choose to travel to the town, be prepared for a long and busy journey. Do not drive to the town and expect to be able to park your car easily.
A number of roads, as well as town centre car parks and on-street parking areas will be closed or suspended. More information can be found on the RBWM website.
Capacity on the Long Walk will be restricted for public safety. Once full, there will be no further access granted.
Screens will be in place in Home Park Public, showing televised footage of the funeral and committal service, however, people are warned that capacity here will also be limited for public safety.
We have a wide range of security measures in place to keep the public safe, some which you can see and others which you cannot.
Specialist officers from our search teams and roads policing unit have been carrying out searches alongside our armed officers and mounted section. We are working with colleagues from British Transport Police to patrol at railway stations and on public transport.
They will continue to be out and about over the coming days. Please feel free to approach and speak to them.
Before setting off, check the logistics of your journey to make sure it is accessible, and consider alternative ways that you can pay your respects.
