My Euro Travel to the Most Occupied Castle in the World, Windor Castle in England

Am I right with my title? I believed so! According to the book I bought about Windsor castle, it is considered to be the largest occupied castle in the world. It is also considered to be the oldest in terms of continuous occupation. It is an honor to visit this castle! Another dream come true! To show you an evidence is the picture I have below.

Windsor Castle is located in Windsor in the English country of Berkshire. If I am not mistaken, it is around forty minutes by train from London. I had a very nice feeling as me and a friend were touring at Windsor. Sad to say, taking photos inside the castle rooms are not allowed.

I had a great time touring at this historical place, The Windsor Castle in England

"Together with Buckingham Palace in London and Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh, it is one of the principal official residences of the British monarch. Queen Elizabeth II spends many weekends of the year at the castle, using it for both state and private entertaining. Her other two residences, Sandringham House and Balmoral Castle, are the Royal Family's private homes.

Most of the Kings and Queens of England, later Kings and Queens of Great Britain, and later still kings and queens of the Commonwealth realms, have had a direct influence on the construction and evolution of the castle, which has been their garrison fortress, home, official palace, and sometimes their prison. Chronologically the history of the castle can be traced through the reigns of the monarchs who have occupied it. When the country has been at peace, the castle has been expanded by the additions of large and grand apartments; when the country has been at war, the castle has been more heavily fortified. This pattern has continued to the present day.
