Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle

In a word, it was amazing. It is also a very big place.
While you are free to photograph the outside,
you cannot take any photographs inside.
Hence, why the photos are all of the outside.

The inside of the castle was spectacular.
Absolutely gorgeous and so very regal!
And the Town of Windsor is
adorable. 



















We took the tube to Paddington Station (which has a statue of the one 
and only PADDINGTON BEAR!), from there we hopped on another train and a half hour
later, we were in a little town called Windsor. It was actually quite easy to get to 
from Central London. We decided on this route because we didn't want 
to be on someone's else timetable. We work best being on "twin" time,
which really is whatever Marie says it is.

 As soon as you get off the train, you’re immediately in one of the cutest little
 outdoor mall area, called the “Windsor Royal Shoppes” It is absolutely adorable. 
Windsor Castle is right across the street. We spent a couple of hours at the castle and 
then spend the rest of the time walking around the town. There were shops, cafe's and
restaurants.  We spent about four hours in Windsor but could have stayed longer. We definitely would love to go back and spent more time there.  It's a great place to visit. It is also home 
to Eton College but we didn't get a chance to visit. 

We did go out to Windsor on the day we arrived. We flew in earlier
enough that we were in Windsor by noon. It was a great way to spend the first day. 
All the fresh air and walking really helped with the jetlag.
Yes, we slept like logs that first night. Lol.


Have you been to Windsor Castle??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

  10. Such a beautiful castle! And I love that you guys are on "twin time", because I hate being on a scheduled tour too. I'm either done way before everyone else or I feel totally rushed.
