Windsor Castle

 

 

 

 

 

 

Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world and the Official Residence of Her Majesty The Queen. Its rich history spans almost 1000 years.

The Castle covers an area of about 5 hectares (13 acres) and contains

• Magnificent State Apartments furnished with treasures from the Royal Collection
• St George’s Chapel (one of the most beautiful ecclesiastical buildings in England and the burial place of 10 monarchs)
• Queen Mary’s Dolls House, a masterpiece in miniature
• The Drawings Gallery featuring an exhibition

We walked around the town as well, it is pretty.
