We went to Windsor to visit the Queen

It’s been a while since I shared one of our London explorations. There are still a few to be shared, we’ve had so many awesome days out since we’ve been here.

windsor-13Since the castle is Her Majesty’s official residence, you only get to see a portion of the castle – it is a BIG portion, but not a big as the part where the Queen lives, which is kind of mind boggling! Like, what do you do with that much space?

Technically photo’s are not allowed inside the castle, but I did manage to sneak a few snaps…not the best quality because being sneaky only gives you limited range! I hope you enjoyed!

The best bit of the visit was walking through St George’s Chapel while someone played Don’t stop me now by Queen on the organ.

Until next time,
