Windsor Castle, the Queen's favorite residence...
DH, DD, DS and I visited as part of the one tour we took on our May 2006 London/Paris trip. As instructed by our tour guide we looked for the flag, which was in fact raised, to indicate that the Queen was in residence that day.
We went through the tour enjoying the many rooms and beautiful grounds of the huge castle that was built 900 years ago. We even stood in line outside in the rain to do the tour of Queen Mary's Doll House built by architect Sir Edwin Lutyens. The kids loved it, well, we did too.
Although this probably isn't my favorite castle I've visited, I'm glad I got to see it and learn about its history.
