Owner description: Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world and offers an extraordinarily rich and varied day out. Throughout its history, the Castle has been redecorated, enlarged and rebuilt. Today The Queen spends most of her private weekends at the Castle, which is also used regularly for ceremonial and State occasions.

We watched the Royal Wedding a few weeks prior and now to walk the very grounds and stand in the same church was fun. The access you are allowed is amazing and not seen in the states. Make sure you follow the rules and take pictures were you are allowed they will take your pictures from you, we had more fun watching them tell people to delete their picture from inside were they weren’t allowed to even have cameras out.

British history and its castles have always caught the imagination and fascination of public at large. When you talk if Castles, Windsor Castle, tops the list. Windsor has been the family home to British monarchs for over 1,000 years.
The formidable Castle occupies a sprawling area of about (5hectares/13 acres)being the largest and oldest occupied Castle in the world. Her Majesty The Queen chooses to spend most of her private weekends here. Recently it was a witness to the spectacular wedding of now,”The Duke of Sussex, the Duchess of Sussex.”A tip, for visiting Windsor Castle, do book your tickets in advance and avoid the queues.

The grand apartments are adorned with some of the finest works of art from the Royal Collection, such as paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens and Canaletto.
Take in the solemn splendour of St George's Chapel is an epitome of Gothic architecture in England.
The Chapel was also a witness to the wedding,that the world watched, of Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle. It is also the burial place of 10 monarchs including Henry VIII and Charles I.
Queen Mary's Dolls’ House, is absolutely awesome and the largest, most beautiful and most famous dolls’ house in the world.
The Semi-State Rooms, the majestic private apartments are open to visitors from October to March each year.The Queen hosts her guests in these splendid rooms.Be prepared to be awed
whilst watching the Changing of the Guard!  A colourful spectacle of British Pageantry.
Windsor castle and it’s beautiful garden is a breathtaking kaleidoscope of British royalty.

Recently visited Windsor castle on a family trip while staying in London. We took the train from Waterloo station to Windsor and were right in the heart of the little town, close to the castle. This was a fun day trip because it was easy to get to and it was nice to see a smaller town outside of London as well as the castle. The castle and its grounds and larger than I expected so we spent almost three hours touring the place. And then we were able to go out into the town and have a late lunch at a pub. Definitely buy tickets before hand as we did in order to skip the long line to purchase tickets that we saw when we arrived.

"No pictures inside St. George’s Chapel, don't walk on the grass, move along, no benches or seats, I don’t know, move along more quickly." Amazing chapel, beautiful grounds, unique history, the Queen's favourite indeed ...... but if you are looking for a sense of warmth, understanding of the Royal family, consideration, humour and class ..... go to Kensington.
