Getting to Windsor Castle from London

Hi All, I am traveling to London, staying in the Bayswater area. What is the best way to go to Windsor Castle? Thanks for all suggestions.

We've always taken the train from Paddington Station. You have to change at Slough- but it is very easy to do. Takes about 25-30 min. total. There are no discounted fares on this route, so just buy your tickets the day you travel. I believe you can also take a train from Waterloo station, but it arrives at a less central station in Windsor, and Paddington is easy to get to by tube from almost anywhere. Trains run between Windsor and Paddington go 2 or 3 times an hour, so no problems getting there or back whenever you wish.
