Windsor Castle

It is hard to believe that Windsor Castle started life as a wooden keep built by William the Conqueror, which Henry II then tore down and rebuilt, to become the castle much as you see it today. 

Windsor Castle has been the official residence of the Queen and royal residence for nine centuries.  When the Queen is in residence at Windsor Castle, the Royal Standard flag is flown from the top of the Round Tower.  It is one of the largest and oldest inhabited castles in the world.  It covers 13 acres and its precincts are almost a mile around. 

Attractions to see include the State Apartments, Queen Mary's Doll Houses and exhibition of The Queen's Presents and Carriages.

In 1992 a fire destroyed some of the state apartments.  With no insurance the Royal family found themselves with a 50 million bill, half of which was footed by the tax payer and the other half paid by the Queen herself.  To raise the money the Queen began inviting the public into Buckingham Palace during August and September.
