Queen gives President Bush tour of Windsor Castle

Published: Monday 16th of June 2008

President George W Bush was able to indulge his fascination for English history when he was given a guided tour of Windsor Castle by the Queen yesterday (June 15th).

Accompanied by his wife Laura, Mr Bush was shown around the 900-year-old building which homes to many kings and queens throughout history.

The Daily Telegraph reports that Her Majesty - who has met every US president since 1952, apart from Lyndon Johnson - showed Mr Bush the ceiling of St George's Hall, in addition to suits of armour and pictures of past monarchs.

Mr Bush, who has been on an eight-day farewell tour of Europe, was also shown a private exhibition of pictures, letters and other artefacts concerning previous visits by American presidents.

London Pass holders can receive free entry to Windsor Castle, a must-see tourist attraction for visitors to the capital.

The castle's art collection includes masterpieces by Rubens, Holbein, Brueghel and Van Dyck.
