Travelogue: Windsor Castle

It’s travel weekend once again. I was trying to look into my albums on what I could possibly share today. I just realized I haven’t posted anything about Windsor Castle. I got this tour online for my second weekend in London. It was a full day tour outside the city that includes Windsor Castle, City of Bath, and the famous Stonehenge. You can see my photos of City of Bath HERE and Stonehenge HERE.

Windsor castle is known to be the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world. More than 500 people live and work in this castle. Oooh… How I wish I’m one of those 500. LOL! 😀

It’s a medieval castle, which is the official residence of the Queen. It covers an area of about 5 hectares.

We visited various State Apartments, photos weren’t allowed inside though. We also had a chance to see Queen Mary’s Dolls’ house (world’s most famous Dolls’ House). The collection was amazing!

Ooooh, can I just say how perfect that trip was?! It was my favorite season of the year, fall!!! I love seeing leaves turning orange! They are just so picture perfect for me! 😀

Lucky to see the changing of the guards at that time!

Windsor Castle is definitely a must-see, though a bit far from Central London. Surprisingly, I personally love this more than Buckingham Palace, or even Versailles. 😀
