morning was damp and chilly, but we continued with our plans to visit Windsor
Castle. Luckily my cold was much
improved, thank goodness.
caught the train to Windsor from Paddington Station, there was a very quick
change at Slough and we arrived at Windsor Central Station. It was an easy few minutes walk through the
drizzle to the Castle.
enjoyed our day, I particularly enjoyed the Doll’s House as when I had visited
as a child, it was always summertime and the queues were too long for my father
to put up with! One of the many good
things about winter travel is the lack of crowds. We also got to visit the State Apartments and
St. George’s Chapel, which of course will be the setting of this year’s Royal
Wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan.
finishing up at the Castle, we found a local pub, The Three Tuns, for
lunch. G had a chicken korma and I had a
delicious slow cooked lamb should with mash and vegetables. Perfect food for a chilly day.
returned by train and were back at the hotel for a drink in the lounge. We then headed to Giotto’s Italian in
Bloomsbury for dinner with S. & L.
Very good Italian food at a restaurant that we will return to.
