Windsor Castle was built in the 11th century after the Norman invasion by William the Conqueror. Since the time of Henry I, it has been used by succeeding monarchs and is the longest-occupied palace in Europe. The castle’s lavish, early 19th-century State Apartments are architecturally significant, described by art historian Hugh Roberts as “a superb and unrivalled sequence of rooms widely regarded as the finest and most complete expression of later Georgian taste.

The castle includes the 15th-century St George’s Chapel, considered by historian John Martin Robinson to be “one of the supreme achievements of English Perpendicular Gothic” design. More than 500 people live and work in Windsor Castle.
