Preparing to venture out in Windsor - See Windsor Castle

Check out a Windsor winter wonderland around Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle

A lot of people just stay at home during winter, normally because they’re too cold to go outside, but during winter you can get warmer by hiking and walking around. The beautiful region has so many activity options available in both summer and winter, but walking and hiking allow you to see the beautiful Windsor scenery properly. So pack your case and book yourself a weekend in the serene area of Windsor including Windsor Castle. The only problem with venturing out in winter is that while walking may warm you up, you still need to ensure that you dress properly otherwise the cold can be too intense to allow you to enjoy the breath taking Windsor scenery.


Windsor CastleWhen preparing to go hiking in Windsor during winter, it is very important to prepare carefully and to make sure that you are wearing the correct clothing. You should wear several thin layers, rather than one thick layer, as this will help to trap air in between the layers, making the clothing more thermally efficient. All the layers should be made of breathable material, to help to prevent moisture build up. There should be a base layer made from a thermal fabric that will wick, or draw moisture away from the skin. Makes such as Helly Hansen and Peter Storm are very good for a base layer.

The upper body will need more layers than the legs, as the upper body is moving less, whereas the legs are moving more and will generate more heat. You should also wear a waterproof top layer. This will help to protect against cold winds, snow and rain. On your feet you will need to wear lining socks that will wick away moisture from the skin, and several more layers of socks, to trap air and heat, thus helping to prevent frostbite occurring. A good pair of hiking boots is a must too. Thermal socks are a good idea. Hands will also require gloves or mitts with a lining base layer to wick away moisture, and preferably a fleece lining.

To summarise, lots of thin layers are better than one thick one, as they trap heat and air, and can also be removed if you get too hot. You can't do this with one thick layer so easily. Following the above advice should keep you safe when hiking in winter, and help to prevent hypothermia developing. It is also a good idea to carry a spare base layer, to put on if your other clothes get wet, as is quite possible during winter
