Photo of The Week

 Had a few days in Windsor this week, what a beautiful place it is. I was really looking forward to a trip to Legoland, but in the end we decided to visit the castle instead.


What a beautiful place, the staff were so helpful, one asked if I would like the use of a complimentary wheelchair, an offer I accepted and as a result we were able to stay all day, normally I'm so shattered after an hour.

We were able to get around and see everything, nowhere was inaccessible, we were directed to the disabled access points without having to ask anyone the way, we also had our very own escort in the State Apartments as we had to go into the private area to use the lift.

I totally reccomend Windsor Castle for a day out if you have mobility issues, I'll defiantly be going again.

    1. It's well worth going inside, I recommend you go early if you want to watch the changing of the guard. We missed it as we were still caught up going through security, although we got pictures of them out on the main road entering.

  8. We adore Windsor Castle! As a little girl I remember spending so many days there - we used to go for large family picnics in the park opposite the castle. I must take B Lloyd one day soon, I used to love walking through the castle!

    Sounds like you had a fabulous time, and what a gorgeous photo too!

    Thank you for linking up with Photo of The Week XXX
