Windsor Castle to open Round Tower

News about Greenwich below comes from the World Travel Market -the travel industry fair in London’s Docklands this week.

Another announcement made at the WTM is that Windsor Castle’s Round Tower will be open to visitors during August and September next year. There are 189 steps to the battlements.

This is the highest point of the castle where the Union Jack or Royal Standard flies. It’s a reference point for walkers on the Thames Path and I look forward to enjoying the view back down on to the winding Thames and beyond to the London skyline.

William the Conqueror chose this strategic point for a fortress and for centuries the river was an important highway for the castle.
