The Windsor castle build by William the Conqueror was not the stone walled enclosure you find today but a wooden fortress. Still, the current castle retains the basic lay out of the wooden castle, two baileys (courtyards) with the motte at center. It was King Henry II that replaced the wooded fortifications with cut rock towards the end of the 12th century.

Of course, tourist today do not visit Windsor Castle for the primary reason of viewing its ramparts. No, they come to get a peek inside the life of British Royalty. Here Windsor does not disappoint, one can watch the changing of the guard, explore a fantastic art collection, view priceless royal memorabilia and visit the state rooms where the nobel, and not so nobel, have been entertained.
Unfortunately, no photograph is allowed with in the castle.
