- The official guidebook to the Windsor Castle
- Illustrated with 130 colour images including paintings, drawings, works of art, historic documents and beautiful photographs of the State Rooms
Windsor Castle, the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world, is one of the official residences of Her Majesty The Queen. The Castle’s dramatic site encapsulates over 900 years of British history. It covers an area of 26 acres and also contains the magnificent St George’s Chapel and the homes and workplaces of a large number of people. This fully illustrated official souvenir guide details the history of the Castle from its founder, William the Conqueror, to the present day, including the fire of 1992 and the superb restoration of the damaged rooms, and presents a beautifully illustrated tour of the Castle, including the State Apartments and Semi-State Apartments and their treasures.
