Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world and an official residence of Her Majesty The Queen. The magnificent State Apartments are lavishly furnished with treasures from the Royal collection. St. George's Chapel is of the most beautiful ecclesiastical buildings in England. It is where Henry VIII is buried. A Royal home and fortress for over 900 years, the Castle remains a working palace today. The Queen uses the Castle both as a private home, where she usually spends the weekend, and as a Royal residence at which she undertakes certain formal duties. When The Queen is in official residence, Changing the Guard provides a colourful spectacle in the quadrangle. Windsor Castle is also a busy visitor attraction. Many parts of the Castle are open to the public, including the precincts, the State Apartments, Queen Mary's famous dolls' house, St George's Chapel, and the Albert Memorial Chapel.
