Best things to do in Windsor and sightseeing in Windsor
Windsor Castle - Windsor
An English Castle.. still used by the Royal Family . Did you know Windsor Castle is the oldest and biggest occupied castle in the world?The castle looked fabulous against the blue skies.The gardens /landscaping is beautiful which made the walk to the castle so pleasant. There is change of guards at 11 am on few days a week … its a pretty long ceremony, exciting & new in the beginning.. but we got bored after 10 mins of watching guards march & clicking pictures.
When I stepped out of my Frances Lodge, the first place I visited was the Windsor Castle. It is the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world. It is the royal residence of Windsor. The beautiful architecture and the protective walls dominate the landscape of this delightful city. If you want to visit the castle with the added bonus of not having to pay, then go to the 6 p.m. Prayer service, held every evening in St Georges Chapel. You can also enjoy the panoramic view of the Great Windsor Park with the Long Walk.
Frances Lodge - Windsor
Former rugby star Zinzan Brooke and his wife Alison are the owners of this place. Leave it for them to provide you with the best services. They were very friendly on the phone and during our stay and hugely accommodating, even though we were a group of 12. The rooms were very well decorated. They even have car parking spaces, a rarity in Windsor. The food here has truly been one of the biggest highlights of my stay here.
The Two Brewers - Windsor
St. George's Chapel - Windsor
Next we went to St Georges Chapel which is also on the castle grounds. Its beautiful with Gothic architecture. All the knights are assigned a stall in the chapel choir above which his or her heraldic devices are displayed. After death, the stall plates, however, are not removed; they remain permanently affixed, so the stalls of the chapel are filled with a colorful record of the members throughout history.
Windsor Racecourse - Windsor
The next destination to head to is the Windsor Racecourse for Monday races. It can qualify as one of the best evening watching the horse racing. The easiest and most fun way to get there is by boat. If you are lucky, you might just win enough to pay for an extended trip in the city.
