Windsor Castle voted one of the nation’s favourite landmarks 

If you’re still in need of things to do in the summer holidays then how about a visit to Windsor Castle? 

The oldest and largest occupied castle in the world has just been named as one of the nation’s favourite landmarks. 

The new study by photo printing specialists CEWE has revealed the top landmarks to visit with the list being topped by Stonehenge. 

Founded by William the Conqueror in the 11th century, Windsor Castle has been the home of 39 monarchs. Work is currently under way to transform the experience of visiting the castle with changes being made to include a café in the original medieval Undercroft, reinstating the Inner Hall and revealing the view of the Long walk to the public for the first time.
