I really don't like giving poor reviews but thought I totally wasted my time here.
My wife and I had a day planned a day in Eton and Windsor.
Reviews of the college looked great and we viewed the web site....open all day, tours at particular times.
We walked up Eton high street and when arriving at the college a sign directed you - visitors this way. We should have twigged as other people walked passed us, returning from the fruitless walk, which went to rear of the building and a hut that was shut. On the hut window a sign, please visit Visitor Centre and gift shop. It did not say where? We returned, along with 4 or 5 other couples / families doing the same. Over the road is the Visitor Centre, which was closed. So onto the front of the college. We chatted with a porter / security guard. Very pleasant, but told to go back to the Visitor Centre....which was closed. Other small groups of people were all doing he same rounds....all confused.
This was 12.30 on a busy Saturday afternoon.
So we and everyone else gave up and headed back into town.
I can't review the college, which I'm sure may be a great tour, if you can get in.
Why the poor review....there was no information. Nobody to ask. Poor and misleading signage. If I was the only idiot searching around to get in then fair enough, but there were numerous other families and couples doing exactly the same. Is this the best ETON College can do?
If intending to go, please plan your journey first.
