Windsor Castle - Fun Day Trips from London

England's Oldest Castle
Windsor Castle, located about an hour's drive outside of London, is the oldest castle in England. It's also the most famous castle in the world.

Built by William the Conqueror, the Castle looks out over the countryside and Windsor Great Park. One of The Queen's official residences, its rooms are furnished with priceless works of art from the Royal Collection.

Keep a look-out for the Royals — a few years ago, one of our cousins from NY visiting the castle for the first time, caught a glimpse of the Queen as she was leaving the castle.



Changing of the Guard
Changing of the Guard days and hours are subject to change.

March (weather permitting) every other day.
April thru' July daily.
Check official web site for Windsor Castle (and Buckingham Palace) Changing of the Guard before your visit.

If you have the time, it's also worth spending an hour or two walking around the quaint town of Windsor— it's loaded with antique shops, fun restaurants and historic pubs.



Eton College — one of the most exclusive schools in the world
Founded in 1440 by King Henry VI — Eton is one of the oldest schools in the country. It's also one of the most famous — Prince William graduated there. Eton has also educated 18 former British Prime Ministers.

You'll be sure to recognize the students if you see them — their attire dates back to the 1850s — black tails, vest, and pin-striped pants.
