A Royal Welcome, Guranteed!
*Anyone coming to visit Windsor will discover a town with royal connections and an imposing stone fortress. Founded in Norman times by William the Conqueror, Windsor Castle acts as a Royal residence for the Queen and has been home to 39 monarchs during its illustrious history. The State Apartments are a sight to behold, while the Changing of the Guard ceremony on selected days is a stunning spectacle of British pageantry. Look out for the Royal Standard flying from the Castle’s Round Tower too, as it’s a sign the Queen is in residence. Hunt for souvenirs in the main Windsor shopping areas of Peascod Street, Windsor Royal Station and King Edward Court, get your teeth into its delectable food scene, or delve into the brick world of LEGOLAND Windsor, a theme park with rides and attractions for all the family.
