    Windsor Castle is a working palace and the oldest and largest continuously inhabited castle in the world, making it a real must-see for royal enthusiasts. Originally built by William the Conqueror, the monarchy have added additional buildings to the castle over the last 900 years. Windsor Castle has survived two sieges during the Magna Carta Wars, the English Civil War and during the modern world wars. So wherever you stand, you’re surrounded by history.

    See the State Apartments which represent Gothic, Classical, Rococo and Jacobethan styles of architecture. Visit St George’s Chapel, a 15th Century building on the lower ward of the castle. It is the last resting place of royalty such as Edward IV, Henry VIII and Charles I. You can still see the original wooden choir stalls. The oriel window on the north side was a present to Catherine of Aragon from her husband, Henry VIII. Completed in 1924, the Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House is over 3 feet tall and was built as a gift to Queen Mary. The miniature house is perfect in every detail; it has electric lighting and running water. Many craftsmen and artists contributed to the presentation such as the furniture, carpets and walls. Even the bottles in the cellar are filled with wine.
