Frogmore House, Windsor

This post seems to have been lost in my drafts for months on end, but it’s here now!

Frogmore House is a royal residence that is usually closed to the public and lies south of Windsor Castle. This building, in my opinion, seems much more comfortable and homely than the Castle is, and I can understand why it is the chosen venue for many smaller royal functions and conferences.

The house goes back to the 17th-century and was bought by Charles II. It was later expanded by subsequent royal owners. Honestly, I don’t think the exterior is much to write home about, but the interiors were quite lovely, but again, on a completely different level from other palaces and castles. Unfortunately no photography was allowed on the inside so we’ll have to make do with exterior shots.DSC_0002

In the photo above and in the one below, the walkway you can see is called the Long Walk and it’s development began in the 17th-century.
