If you're not going to Scotland, head for the Edinburgh Woollen Mill, 10 Castle Hill (tel. 0808/202-0242; www.ewm.co.uk), with the finest selection of Scottish knitwear and tartans in Windsor. A colorful traditional English perfumery, Woods of Windsor, Queen Charlotte Street (tel. 01753/868125; www.woodsofwindsor.co.uk), dates from 1770.
