To some, Windsor stands as a symbol of England and Great Britain, thanks to its history and link to the Royal Family. By far the most famous attraction is Windsor Castle, the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world.  Occupied since the 10th century, Britain’s monarchs have inhabited the castle for almost 1,000 years. The enormous castle is 484,000 square feet, or 147523 square meters in size, and contains around 1000 rooms!

With a royal connection, Windsor is unsurprisingly well kept, providing plenty of charming attractions for visitors. Once used as the monarch’s hunting ground, and a spot for jousting Windsor Great Park is another top attraction, offering visitors serene greenery and the chance to see some deer too.

Being on the River Thames, visitors can take part in a number of cruises and drift gently along the river. Some boats with onboard restaurants offer dining experiences, and one option, for those especially interested in bird-watching, is to go on a duck tour!

Whatever visitors choose to do, spending time in Windsor is an opportunity to relax and take in some royal history. After spending a few hours in the town, visitors can understand exactly why the Royal Family have been coming to Windsor for the last 1000 years.
