Windsor is the oldest inhabited castle in the world - for over 900 years it's been home to kings and queens, including our Queen Elizabeth II.

This colourful activity book reveals the secrets of the world's oldest inhabited castle and the Kings and Queens who have lived there. 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.
