A royal day out

A visit to the historic town of Windsor with our London students.

Windsor Castle

Last Saturday, we embarked on a very royal adventure with our London students as we visited Windsor Castle, one of The Queen’s official royal residences.

Everyone headed to Windsor together on the train. One of our lovely students cooked breakfast for us all to enjoy during the journey. Once we arrived at Windsor Castle, we took our time exploring the grounds and learning about the history of this regal landmark.

Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world. The castle has been the family home for British kings and queens for nearly 1,000 years. The Queen often spends her weekends at Windsor and hosts many royal events there including state visits and the service of the Order of the Garter.*

After everyone had finished taking their photos we had lunch at a local Italian restaurant. In the afternoon, we went for a walk around Windsor and saw Eton College, one the of the UK’s most famous private schools. The all-male college has many famous alumni such as Prince William and Prince Harry.

On our way back to the train station, we walked by the river and enjoyed the scenic views. All in all we had a lovely day out exploring this historic, royal town.
