Day trip to Windsor
What exactly is Windsor Castle and why is it so important? For a start, we are talking about the currently oldest and largest occupied castle in the world! Luckily, the grounds are also open to visitors throughout the year. If you get lucky during your tour, you might even see Her Majesty The Queen there as she tends to spend most of her private weekends at this castle. It was the home of 38 monarchs before her!
And you will definitely be able to tell who lived there when passing through some of the luxurious state-rooms and apartments which have been decorated by the likes of Leonardo Da Vinci and Rembrandt.
Outside of the castle walls, the top experts in gardening have made sure that Windsor Castle has the most beautiful surroundings possible. The Round Tower and St. George’s Chapel (the venue of the latest royal wedding and burial ground for 10 British monarchs) – both famous for their unique architecture – add even more to the experience.
While planning your visit, remember to take some time to see the Changing of Guard. It is similar to the one at Buckingham Palace, but here the troops are marching some 500m from their barracks through the town of Windsor – which makes for a special spectacle.
