The largest and oldest occupied castle in the world, Windsor Castle has been a home to British monarchs since Henry I began using it in the 11th century. The focal point of your visit should be the staterooms. They date to the late 17th century, when Charles II set out to make the castle as lavish as Versailles. George IV further enhanced these rooms during his reign in the 1820s, and today you'll see how they reflect his extravagant taste. Make sure you see Queen Mary's dollhouse, which was built to a 1:12 scale and is the largest and perhaps most richly appointed dollhouse in the world. St. George's Chapel's fine gothic architecture and grand stone-fan vaulting make it a highlight of the tour. Before you start your visit, pick up a free audio guide in the courtyard.

Table services, paintings, tapestries, frescoes, wonderful rooms. It is worth going from London by train and spending the whole day between castle and visit to the village, very picturesque and full of shops and clubs If you are a family, with online booking you save.
The Windsor castle is a lovely location to visit. Calm and relaxing. Beautiful old castle. Always a great day out. After the long walk you could stop by at the mall, to eat and do most of your shopping. I will love to visit there again.
Lovely tour, we were very lucky it was sunny! The tour of the rooms was very interesting and informative, kicked ourselves that we didn't get the audio tour as we probably missed out on a lot.
