Discover Windsor Castle United Kingdom

You don't have to be a royalist to appreciate the magnificent architecture of Windsor Castle. Built in the eleventh century following William the Conqueror's Norman invasion, it is now the largest and longest-inhabited palace in Europe, most notably by the British royal family who continue to use it as their weekend home of choice.

Covering 13 acres, the castle offers visitors an array of choice. Treasures from the Royal Collection are found in the architecturally important State Apartments, whereas St George's Chapel serves as a monarchical burial site. Permanent and temporary exhibitions can be viewed in the Drawings Gallery, while the intricate Queen Mary's Dolls House will appeal to both young and older. The changing of the guard occurs on even numbered days (excluding Sundays), so choose your days accordingly.
