Travelogue: Off To Windsor Castle

Less than an hour outside metropolitan London lies Windsor Castle, the world's oldest and largest inhabited castle. Built by William the Conqueror after the Norman Invasion in 1070 over a period of 16 year, it has been home to kings and queens in Great Britain for over a thousand years. (You can read about previous occupants of the castle here.)

Her Majesty the Queen still spends most of her private weekends here, and the castle is also often used for state banquets and official entertaining. 

It makes for a perfect day trip from the city, and there are lots of lovely shops in the area. However we only managed to tour the castle grounds because we were heading to Oxford in the afternoon and I would love to go back when the weather is less cold and dreary.

P/S: I don't know what they feed the grass there but it really is the most vibrant, luscious green I have ever seen in my life!

You can find out more information about visiting Windsor Castle here. No advanced booking is required but be prepared to wait in line for tickets and to go through security.
