History and features of Windsor Castle
The longest, continually occupied palace in Europe, Windsor Castle originally served as a fortress for William the Conqueror, the first of the Norman kings of England. Some decades later, Henry I would be the first royal to use the castle as a residence.
Over the years, Windsor Castle has experienced many refurbishments and additions at the command of royalty, including the 15th-century St George's Chapel and the Henry VIII gateway, constructed in 1510. In the 19th century, as the British Empire grew, Queen Victoria held many state visits with foreign dignitaries at Windsor Castle.
Today, Windsor Castle still sees its fair share of official visitors, plus plays host to important national events, such as royal weddings. Tourists are welcomed to visit certain areas of Windsor Castle as well, and can take group tours of the grounds or visit special galleries organised throughout the year.
