    Windsor Castle

    Sometimes you just need 13 acres of castles, towers, and gardens to really unwind—or at least you do if you're a British royal. Wander onto this tremendous retreat favored by the Royal Family for the afternoon, and explore what is essentially a small town. Behind the walls of its exquisite architecture you’ll find treasures that date back to its origins in 1070—from original Da Vinci sketches to the royal remains of monarchs past.
