Description

The Royal Borough of Windsor is home to two of the UK's Top 20 Visitor Attractions (Windsor Castle and Legoland) but also boasts Eton College, The Changing of the Guard, the Savill Garden, Ascot Racecourse, Royal Windsor Course and more. Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world and the favourite weekend home of The Queen. Eton College, perhaps the most famous school in the world, was founded in 1440 and is the alma mater of eighteen prime ministers. Windsor Great Park, 1000 acres of woodland, lakes and gardens, is a much loved resource for visitors and locals alike. And every June, Ascot Racecourse is the setting for a spectacular pageant of horses and racegoers. Joanna Jackson captures this quintessentially English subject through the seasons.
