The oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world, Windsor Castle is also a magnificent palace full of elegance and exuberance. This in-app audio guide will lead you through its iconic buildings and over 1,100 years of its history. Head to Windsor Castle and take a multimedia tour of the State Apartments, which reflect the exquisite taste of Charles II and George IV. Explore the beauty of the fine French and English furniture and artwork from the Royal Collection. Walk through St. George's Chapel, the famous burial place of ten monarchs, and find out what secrets this place holds. Get amazed by Queen Mary's Dolls' House. This 1:12 scale model house features miniature replicas of items from throughout the house and specially created things, including a tiny Sherlock Holmes story written specifically for the house.
