Thank you, I certainly hope so. It's a lovely town with a very pleasant atmosphere so worth a visit sometime. How do you mean French/German element? Architecture you mean? It felt quite continental mainly because it was unseasonably warm at the time.

Lovely city, very well preserved and very cosy too. It must be great to go for a walk with sunny weather in a place like that like we see in the pictures.

Thanks again Mike.

What a gem, neat, tidy and gorgeous!

Everything is so well preserved. And of course, the largest inhabited castle in the world. I've heard the Queen considers Windsor Castle to be her true home.

Thank you! Oh yes, that was intentional though I would've liked to have taken the picture a bit earlier when it was in the middle of the picture. Unfortunately there were too many other cars to get a complete shot.

Thanks again Mike.
It was lovely to walk around in sunshine and 24C. Still a summery and outdoor feeling despite it being October.

Yes that's right. And what a home to have, the castle is amazing and I've only seen it from the outside. At some point I'll venture into the castle itself.

Thanks mate, yes it's well worth a visit. And that house was very cute between the Guildhall to the right and shops to the left. There's a pub inside but the slight leaning angle makes it look like something off Diagon Alley from Harry Potter.

I always thought that Windsor is only the castle.
it's a surprise it has a lovely and charming town,
a perfect place to unwind.
BTW, is the castle open to public for viewing?
thanks anyways Mike for a nice job.

Hi, thanks mate! That's right Windsor doesn't only boast a castle, the town is lovely too. And the castle is open to the public yes.

PART V






























And that concludes my tour of Windsor. I'm sure I'll visit again soon as I'm not far away from it so check back for more photos. Hope you enjoyed them.

this is such a beautiful photo tour of one of Englands's charming places.
I wish that I can see it in person. Thanks Mike for that.
