Windsor is one of the UK's major tourist destinations. Visitors flock to see the magnificent castle dominating the centre of town, and marvel at the Royal pageantry and surrounding areas, including the seventeenth-century Guildhall and the network of medieval streets. Today they can enjoy a unique shopping experience under the cast-iron arches of the old Great Western Railway station and have a meal in the former Royal Waiting Room. In the face of such obvious history, the development of the town itself is often overshadowed, but pockets of the old are still to be found in odd corners, providing a comforting link with the past. In this volume, older Windsorians will recall some of the scenes of yesteryear with nostalgia, while visitors may be surprised to learn just how great the changes have been.
