This is officially the grandest view at the mooring we've ever had!

The origins of Windsor Castle go to the 11th century after the Norman invasion of England by William the Conqueror. Many kings since added outer walls to the castle, royal chapels and royal apartments. Windsor Castle was built as a motte-and-bailey, with three wards surrounding a central mound. the castle withstood a prolonged siege during the First Barons' War at the start of the 13th century. Windsor Castle also survived the English Civil War, when it was used as a military headquarters by Parliamentary forces and a prison for Charles I. Windsor Castle was used as a refuge by the royal family during the Luftwaffe bombing campaigns of the Second World War and survived a fire in 1992.

That fire happened at the time while part of the castle was being renovated, and it is believed that one of the spotlights being used in the work set fire to a curtain by the altar during the morning. Many of the rooms closest to the fire had been emptied as part of the renovation work, and this contributed to the successful evacuation of most of the collection. Apart from the fire itself, the major damage was done by the water as 1.5 million gallons of water were used to extinguish it, which in many ways caused more complex restoration problems than the fire, for example, a floor in one of the galleries took 20 years to dry up.
