Windsor Castle  
Windsor Castle is the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world. It has been home of the Royal Family for over 900 years. It has been completely renovated since the terrible fire of 1992 and visitors can view the State Apartments along with St George's Chapel and The Albert Memorial Chapel.
The Queen hosts occasional 'dine and sleeps' for guests including politicians and public figures. Many royal weddings have also taken place here, most recently that of The Prince Edward and Miss Sophie Rhys-Jones in June 1999.
