Windsor Castle is a royal residence at Windsor in the English county of Berkshire. It's the largest occupied castle in the world and remains a working palace even today. The castle has been strongly associated with the English and British royal family for over 900 years. It's also Queen Elizabeth II's favourite residence and where she spent some of her childhood. The queen typically uses the castle both as a private home, where she enjoys spending her weekends, as well as an official royal residence where she undertakes certain formal duties and holds important events from investitures to state visits.

Apart from exploring the beautiful site of the 900-year-old castle, this three-hour virtual tour provides information about Windsor's military past as well as tales on 12 more castles that are about an hour or less from London. A Virtual Tour Of Windsor Castle consists of a live slideshow and video clips with commentary delivered over the Zoom conferencing system where visitors will have a chance to ask questions during and after the tour. The session is now open to registration via the Virtual Tour Live and Explore Unlimited Tours Facebook pages.
