Windsor is famous for its royal connections and is steeped in the pageantry and history of the royal family. Its glorious riverside location is surrounded by the delightful countryside of Royal Berkshire.
Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world. Founded by William the Conqueror in the 11th century, it has since been the home of 40 monarchs.

The walls in each room are adorned with incredible paintings and murals from history's most famous artists and lined with priceless treasures from all over the world.
St George's Chapel, within the ground of Windsor Castle, is one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in England. Construction of the present Chapel began in 1475 under the reign of Edward IV. When visiting make sure you look up and admire the stone ceiling, which was added by Henry VII.
The Chapel has been the location of many royal weddings including TRH The Earl and Countess of Wessex, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and HRH Princess Eugenie and Mr Jack Brooksbank.
Within the Chapel are the tombs of 11 monarchs, including Queen Elizabeth II, George VI, Henry VIII and Charles I.
