Queens Eyot is a secluded four acre island on the Thames, a few miles upstream from Windsor. The island is accessed by its own private ferry so it is a perfect and unusual venue for both corporate and private hire.
The island has been owned by Eton College since 1923, and has a beautiful clubhouse built in a classical style from cedar and pine, decorated throughout with memorabilia from the College's illustrious rowing history. The word Eyot (pronounced 'eight') is old English and means 'small island' and is used almost exclusively to describe islands on the Thames.
The clubhouse is surrounded by extensive, well tended lawns, mature trees and has views of passing boats and wild life on the river. Queen's Eyot has the winning combination of an unusual, secluded venue, excellent catering, a varied wine selection and professional friendly staff.
It is also possible to include a private group tour of Eton College when booking the island. For example, guests could arrive by coach at Eton College, have a tour of the College buildings, grounds and town and them embark on a steamer for the remainder of the day's activities in the seclusion of Queen's Eyot.
Whatever the occasion we will be delighted to welcome you onto the island and will do our best to ensure that your event is a success.
Queen’s Eyot is within easy reach of London’s airports, the M4 and M25 motorways and is only 10 minutes’ drive from the centre of Windsor.
