Two short train rides from London and you can be in Windsor. I arrived just in time for the changing of the guards and it was much easier to see than at Buckingham Palace. A short walk up the hill and Windsor Castle can be seen in all its glory. I headed straight for the tour of the State Apartments. This was really worth seeing (again no photos allowed). A fascinating insight into Royal life both past and present. I especially liked the China room showing a huge variety of the beautiful sets. There was also a room that had a sheild for every knight of the royal order on its ceiling.
The grounds of the castle are beautiful with gardens filling the disused moats. Definitely worth the time to visitRead more
