Visit this Royal Palace, the largest and oldest continually inhabited castle in the world, currently residence to Queen Elizabeth II.
Windsor Castle sits on a rock a hundred feet above the Thames and can be seen from miles around.
St George’s Chapel is a medieval jewel. Burial place of ten monarchs, including Henry VIII and Charles I, the only British king to be tried and executed by order of his own people. Home to the prestigious Order of the Garter, its stunning Perpendicular Gothic vaulted roof is resplendent with the banners and heraldry of famous Knights of the realm.
Nestling inside the giant royal castle is an unexpectedly grand fantasy home: Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House, perfect to the tiniest detail with its miniature carpets, books, curtains, pictures, a cellar stocked with bottles of vintage French wine and even fully functioning bathrooms.
