  Path up to Windsor Castle along the gardens
by no1birdlady

We signed up for a day trip to Windsor Castle from London. The bus picks you up from your hotel and it is a very interesting trip. Over 900 years ago Wiliam the Conqueror began building this castle designed to guard the western approach to London. It was a days march from the Tower of London. Now it is the official residence of the Queen. She spends holidays and some weekends here.
The round tower is the oldest part. It is now surrounded by gardens and many other structures which have been added over the years. We saw the State Apartments where the Queen stays, then toured the inside of the palace. It is absolutely beautiful. They do not allow photos in there but sell post cards of the rooms.
