While browsing the shops and pubs of Windsor (and near by Eton) is pleasant, it is the Castle of Windsor that draws the people here.

Windsor Castle is thought to be the preferred residence for the Queen of England. Continuously occupied for almost a millennium, the castle is the largest castle in the world still in use as a residence.

It was William I (William the Conqueror) that established a fort here in 1066. Eventually resulting an the establishment of the community of Windsor.

Actually, back then it was called New Windsor as the Windsor name had already been taken by a near by settlement. Now a days, the first Windsor is referred to as Old Windsor with New Windsor just being referred to as Windsor.
