England:

Did you know that the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world was built in the 11th century? A major tourist attraction today, the castle has over 1,000 rooms, more than 300 fireplaces and 78 bathrooms. It even has a palace steward who measures the place settings with a ruler before each major meal.
 
Amazing, right?
 
Do you know where we need to travel in order to visit this castle?…
 
Windsor Castle was originally built by William the Conqueror, who reigned from 1066 until his death in 1087. His original wooden castle stood on the site of the present Round Tower (“A”). The castle formed part of his defensive ring of castles surrounding London, the site chosen in part because of its easily defendable position.
 
A Royal home and fortress for over 900 years, Windsor Castle, the largest occupied castle in the world, remains a working palace today. The Queen uses the Castle both as a private home, where she usually spends the weekend, and as an official Royal residence at which she undertakes certain formal duties from Investitures to State Visits.
 
Every year The Queen takes up official residence in Windsor Castle for a month over Easter (March-April), known as Easter Court. During that time The Queen hosts occasional ‘dine and sleeps’ events for guests, including politicians and public figures and presides over Investiture ceremonies at Windsor Castle throughout the year.
 
Windsor Castle is open to the public, so we can rush over there and see for ourselves.
