Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle is an exquisite monarchical supremity, a zombie of 2nd millennial architecture that remains standing not only as a museum of the past, but as a primary royal residence. Even the most modern additions to the structure refuse to shed history. They are a conservative, grandiloquent combination of Georgian and Victorian design, adhered to what is still a resolutely Norman design. It is as necessarily modern as the few Gothic flourishes allow it to be, but - stubbornly - no more than that.
