Today I decided to get my unemployed arse off the couch and spend some money I didn't really have on a day trip to Windsor. I figure that if I have to go home I might as well fill in my days of unemployment with enjoying the sites and places England has to offer, so I headed down to Waterloo and brought my ticket - at £9 return I was pleasantly surprised and I brought my ticket to the castle from there as well so saved another few pounds yah.

So I jumped on the train and made my way to Windsor. Round Tower ----->

Windsor is a small town not far from London. It is immediately south of the River Thames, which forms its boundary with Eton. Windsor and the surrounding areas contain some of the most expensive and desirable housing in the UK.

After catching up with an old work friend for a coffee and meeting her ultra cute baby, I headed to look around Windsor and the most popular tourist attraction, Windsor Castle.

in Windsor in the English county of Berkshire, is the largest inhabited castle in the world and, dating back to the time of William the Conqueror, is the oldest in continuous occupation. Together with Buckingham Palace in London and Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh, it is one of the principal official residences of the British monarch. Queen Elizabeth II spends many weekends of the year at the castle, using it for both state and private entertaining.

I had a nice time looking around the castle, the state apartments and church. After looking around I walked over the bridge and through the town of Eton and down to Eton college. Unfortunately, the college was closed to visitors so just had a peak through the driveway.
