The roads in and out of Windsor are exceptionally busy and the police are working with partners to ensure the safety of everyone using the road network. Some roads and car parks are closed. Anyone planning to travel to Windsor should expect a longer journey. Before setting off please check the advice from the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, which includes information about the Procession of Her Majesty's Coffin to St George's Chapel for the Committal Service.
If you are visiting any of the Royal Palaces, either at Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle or Westminster Abbey, public spaces are likely to be busier as people gather to pay their respects and the transport network may be busy, so allow more time to travel.
