Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world. Known as the spot in which Queen Elizabeth usually spends her weekends, the castle is as popular with tourists as it is with the Royal Family themselves.

The Queen takes up official residence in Windsor for a month over the Easter period and hosts many events for politicians and guests alike in the castle.
