DLG undertook the comprehensive and sensitive restoration of the former grade-II Windsor Royal Station in the heart of Windsor and removal of modem additions. The former goods yard now provides the location for a new terrace of boutique shops their design and detail reflecting the decorative screen wall which once separated the commercial activity of the station from the Royal route to the Castle. Many of the original features remain, including the Jubilee arch, the cobbled stones and Queen Victoria’s Royal Waiting Room. With over 40 boutique shops, an array of continental style restaurants, cafes and bars and an arts and craft market, the project has provided a vital new commercial and historic heart, and been the catalyst for multiple regenerative and restorative schemes around the town centre.
