Windsor Castle

Hi,

During our recent stay in Henley on Thames in our caravan we had a visit for the day to Windsor and Windsor Castle.  We parked at Legoland Windsor and use the Park and Ride in to Windsor which was very easy and definitely stopped any stress with parking!


When we arrived we had managed to time it perfectly to see the changing of the Guard and watched this as queued to enter the castle.



We had to queue for quite a while but it was very well organised by the Castle staff and as it was such a lovely day with the weather we did not mind the wait.  I did notice people with pre-booked tickets did get through much quicker so if you are planning a visit this may be worthwhile doing beforehand.


We had a packed lunch in the grounds and then explored the state rooms inside the Castle.  No photographs are permitted inside the castle.  It was very busy but we were able to get round the rooms well enough to look at everything we wanted to.


The moat gardens were beautiful and were well worth a visit.  To visit these you will need to pay a little extra.



We walked down from the castle to St. George's Chapel and explored the many tombs and graves within the chapel.   It was lovely to visit these and see the monuments of the famous royals of the past.  It was very touching to visit the Queen's parents and sister's tomb.



We really enjoyed our visit and we had a lovely stroll through the town of Windsor exploring the shops following our tour of the Castle.

Bye for now
