  • The official children’s guide to Windsor Castle, containing fun activities to break up the commentary or enhance a visit
  • Combines historical accuracy with humour and a lightness of touch appropriate for the 7-11 age range

This fun-filled children’s guide reveals the secrets of the world’s oldest inhabited castle and the kings and queens who have lived there for the past thousand years. Over time it has been a royal fortress, a King Arthur-inspired palace, a Victorian Christmas wonderland and home to The Queen (and her corgis)! There’s also a mini palace inside – Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House has hot and cold running water, two working lifts and even flushing lavatories! Jousting and feasting, deaths and dungeons, childhood games and celebrity events – lively illustrations and fun facts bring the castle’s colourful history to life.
