Plus 44 Travel Guide to Windsor Castle

Nearly 950 years ago William the Conqueror, with the help of his victorious armies, commenced construction of the castle at Windsor in 1070. The site was chosen with great care; high above the Thames river on the edge of the former Saxon hunting grounds. The castle was a day's march from London, and guarded the western approaches to the city. Windsor Castle has since been inhabited continuously by Britain's Royal Family. The Castle is widely said to be the largest and oldest castle in the world. (For more historical background click here.)

Dover Castle

It is a massive castle, the largest inhabited castle in the world and it is bigger than people realise. Following the 1992 fire the state apartments have been completely restored. It contains a very important collection of art and furniture.
