Take a trip to Windsor Castle and see their imaginations go crazy, playing soldiers or knights and princesses. I loved Windsor Castle as a child, and it’s just as much fun there as an adult. Windsor Castle is the largest and oldest occupied castle in Europe, and the Queen’s favourite weekend home. Well, if it’s good enough for Liz…
The Castle is set in 13 acres of beautiful lush land, right in the heart of Windsor making it perfect for a whole day out. While you’re at the Castle don’t miss Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House, St George’s Chapel where you’ll find the tombs of 10 sovereigns including Henry VIII, and try and catch the Changing of the Guard (11.00am Monday, Wednesday, Friday & Saturday – times and days can vary though so always check before visiting).
