We saw the castle and had a bit of a wander while waiting for Sara to get off work. And I saw this beautiful shop called Michal Negrin, which sells (pretty, pretty!) jewelry and clothes - heck all the displays are for sale.
I took some pictures in the shop, but they aren't terribly good, because I wasn't sure that they would let me take pictures there, so I had to do in on the sneaky. They are in this Flickr set (along with pictures from Windsor Castle).
Here are some tips for you if you ever go to Windsor.
If the Castle is the only reason you're going, don't bother. It's £14.50 per person (!), but you don't really get to see that much. So unless you're a complete castle-nut, you'll probably be a bit disappointed (we were, and we didn't even have to pay!).
If going by car, don't park anywhere else but the multi-story car park at the shopping centre. We paid £4 for 5 hours; in the other car parks it looked like a similar period would cost almost twice that. Leave extra time to find parking if you go on a Saturday.
Have lunch/dinner at the King and Castle in Thames Street - I can recommend their chilli con carne!
