There was no way I was able to get the whole castle in one picture, it was huge! I figured it was going to be smaller then Buckingham but it wasn't. Windsor had the castle walls, the watch tower, the arrow slits in the concrete and its placed high up on the hill so you could see anything and everything approaching. The castle is also exactly so many miles from the Tower of London, maybe 23 miles. It is so many miles so that when soldiers were traveling by horse and foot they could go from the castle to the tower and back in one day. Inside the castle, wasn't allowed to take pictures, was less gaudy then Buckingham but still greatly decorated with paintings everywhere. The queen prefers to reside at Windsor because its where she grew up, but she was still away on holiday when we were there.
Too bad it was cloudy because the view was so pretty.
Yay got to stand next to the guard, before we were off for Stop 2....Stonehenge!
