Famously home to one of the Queen’s official royal residences, Windsor Castle, which attracts thousands of tourists after a guided tour of the ornate state rooms and the picturesque grounds. Originally built after the Norman Invasion for William the Conqueror, Windsor Castle has been a royal residence for centuries and its history is exemplified in the varying Baroque, Rococo and Gothic furnishings.

Due to the county’s royal association, Berkshire is home to numerous royal palaces and landmarks which are a must-see for tourists. The iconic Blenheim Palace is located just a short drive away from the hotel in Woodstock, Oxfordshire. The palace has UNESCO World Heritage site status and was also the birthplace of celebrated WWII Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Tourists can tour the opulent state rooms, wander the decorative gardens, marvel at the Column of Victory or take the Royal Blenheim miniature railway to the adjoining tourist attraction, the Pleasure Park.

Hampton Court Palace is situated in the nearby Richmond-upon-Thames, just 10 miles northwest of Charing Cross, and is another celebrated UK royal residence. The palace itself celebrates both Tudor and Baroque architectural styles and alongside St James Palace, it is one of the only palaces once home to King Henry VIII still surviving today. Legend has it that his ghost still haunts the main gallery to this day and guests have reported experiencing supernatural encounters, adding to the palace’s mysterious appeal and history.

Just 6 miles from Windsor Castle is arguably the most iconic racecourse in the country, Royal Ascot. The racecourse stages 26 days of racing each year, including the Royal Meeting and Gold Cup in June.
