Windsor Castle

We visited Windsor Castle on a rainy day. While the weather did not cooperate for all of the pictures I would have liked to have made, we still enjoyed touring the castle grounds, viewing the State Apartments and St. George’s Chapel. Windsor Castle is nestled in a small village with many pubs and shops, but the castle complex is a city unto itself. The Queen was in residence as evidenced by her standard flying above the castle. The ancient castle’s interiors rival Versailles with golden decorations and ancient tapestries, but it a living, working building.

After we returned to London, we decided it was a perfect day for a hot cup of tea. We had a traditional English Afternoon Tea at the Chesterfield Hotel complete with sandwiches, scones, sweets and a perfect cup of tea.
