Windsor Castle is not like a real castle to me it is far to clean looking and does not compare to Edinburgh Castle. Throughout my childhood I lived near one or the other of these castles with relatives working in both. Windsor castle is the fairy tale attraction with the very smart guards in their bearskin hats. You can spend a whole day in Windsor looking around the castle, picnic down by the river and take a trip on along the Thames. It will give opportunities to visit Eton too, plus excellent shopping in the town right opposite the Castle. Eating out there is easy and all price, age and taste ranges catered for. ideal for a day out during the school holidays. Boys will love to try and march with the Guards, Girls will love the dolls house and adults can enjoy the history. Helpful for school projects too.
Morning visits in the summer to see the changing of the Guard - tickets on line in good weather to not have to wait once there to get the tickets - this winds up the young ones.
