Windsor Castle : Michelin's recommendations
Windsor Castle is a fascinating transformation of a medieval castle into a sumptuous royal residence. It was William the Conqueror who had it built, in a move to reinforce London's defensive line, and Henri I made it his home as of 1100. The royal family is in residence throughout April and for Ascot Week in June. The state apartments with their collections of furniture and artworks, and St George's Chapel are not to be missed.
