Windsor - Canada, Ontario

Windsor is a Victorian town set on the River Thames west of London and is home to two of the UK's Top 20 visitor attractions – Windsor Castle and Legoland Windsor and more. Windsor is the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world and the Official Residence of Her Majesty The Queen. Its rich history spans almost 1000 years. Founded by William the Conqueror, it first became a royal residence in the reign of Henry I and features additions from them up to Victorian times. Much of the castle visible from the river was built after 1824. It covers an area of about 5 hectares (13 acres) and contains magnificent State Apartments furnished with treasures from the Royal Collection, St George's Chapel (the burial place of 10 monarchs), and Queen Mary's Dolls House, a masterpiece in miniature. Across the Thames is Eton with its quaint high street at the far end of which is Eton College, founded in 1440 by Henry VI. Other sights in the area include the Savill Garden, Ascot Racecourse, and Royal Windsor Racecourse.
