ADVICE issued to those travelling to Windsor by train at the weekend is to travel light and travel early.

Thames Valley Police and British Transport Police will conduct security checks and 2,300m of fencing will be used for queues across key stations on the route.

Large queues are expected to form at both Windsor and Eton Central train stations as people flock to Windsor to enjoy the big day.

Great Western Railway will operate to its maximum capacity with four carriages running every 20 minutes and over 200 additional GWR staff will be on hand to keep people moving.

The train operator will provide over 1,000 boxes of confetti for Windsor wedding-goers, 100 metres of bunting, 60,000 chocolates and over 10,000 bottles of water to keep the party atmosphere going.

GWR managing director Mark Hopwood said: “This will be one of the largest ever one-day events that has taken place on our network and our aim is to ensure our customers have a great day out and enjoy what will be an international spectacle.”
