Where is Windsor UK?
Windsor castle is the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world and is one of the official residences of the Queen. It was originally built by William the Conquerer in the 11th Century and has seen many extensions and fortifications by English monarchs over the years.
The State Apartments are open to the public from March to October and art lovers will be impressed by a collection of some of the finest paintings by Rembrandt, Canaletto and Gainsborough. Visitors can also view George IV’s private apartments which are some of the most lavishly decorated rooms in the castle.
St George's Chapel is one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in England. It is the spiritual home of the Order of the Garter, the senior order of British Chivalry established in 1348 by Edward III. Within the chapel are the tombs of ten sovereigns, including Henry VIII and his third wife Jane Seymour, and Charles I. More recently the Queen Mother was buried here.
Windsor Castle is a working palace and may be closed for State functions so visitors are advised to check opening times before they visit.
