It has been the family home of British kings and queens for almost 1,000 years. The castle was first built as a motte and bailey castle in 1070, by William the Conqueror, and took around 16 years to build. At Windsor you can visit State Apartments and the magnificent St George’s Chapel, the final resting place of Royalty. See Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House which was completed in 1924 as a gift for Queen Mary.
