A few weeks ago Dr X and I had the pleasure of visiting Windsor Castle. Luckily we arrived early in the morning and Dr X had pre-ordered the tickets as the queues were already significantly long. There was a security scanner to pass through which felt like being at the airport and the security guards had scary looking weapons. We found out later that the Queen was also in residence.
|Windsor Castle is very pretty but also really, really large!|
|It's very well maintained|
|and guarded by fierce looking creatures...|
|This one looked more cold than fierce!|
|The royal cat was taking a stroll and keeping an eye out for any royal mice.|
|The cat wasn't too happy that I was sitting on the step soaking up the sun.|
|I managed to convince the RC that there was space on the step for both of us!|
|Dr X refused to be enticed into the royal gift shop.|
|There's lots to see inside the Castle walls. Queen Mary's Dolls House was amazing but you can't take photos of it.|
|We waved goodbye to the Castle and went to explore the rest of Windsor. In the town centre, there's a cute cafe which uses part of an old train for seating.|
Windsor is well worth a visit, but it's not cheap and gets very crowded so pre-booking is advisable! One had a spiffing time.
