The iconic Windsor Castle sits high on the banks of the river Thames and the site for the castle was chosen by William the Conqueror almost 1000 years ago. Along with Buckingham Palace, it is one of the official residences to the Queen of England and was an important royal residency of King Henry VIII and Queen Victoria.
