Visit the two beautiful English towns of Berkshire, which combine the royal past and present with the following photos. Windsor offers the second largest inhabited castle in the world, a beautiful railway station and a city hall with an intriguing history. Eton, on the other hand, is one of the most elite boarding high schools for boys in the country - Eton College or the architecturally breathtaking High Street. They are connected by the Windsor Bridge.

From the magnificent Palace Pier through the Old Steine garden, we head to one of Brighton's most sought-after attractions, the former Royal Pavilion.
Last week we walked through the student town of Eton and today we head to Windsor. Perhaps the most sought-after landmark of the city, which is also its dominant, is Windsor Castle of the same name.
After a short break we return to England, more precisely to the county of Oxfordshire, where we visit one of the most famous university cities in the world - Oxford. This 160,000 center of education offers almost forty dormitories, amazing history, monuments, personalities and, last but not least, its noble atmosphere.
We visited the English city of Oxford last week. We saw a few sights and places of interest, but we missed Oxford University.
Today we look to Brighton, more precisely to the local town hall, located on Bartolomějské Square near the coast. The neoclassical building from the 1930s serves not only as a municipal office, but also holds weddings and you can visit one unusual museum.
Today we look to the English Channel coast. Our goal this time will be the famous Seven Sisters, which extends between Seaford and Eastbourne in the south of England.
Brighton's seafront offers many attractions. Today we will visit the British Airways i360 futuristic lookout tower, located opposite the equally famous West Pier.
After visiting the 360-degree lookout tower, we will stroll down the Brighton Coast today, decorated with architecturally impressive buildings. If we headed toward King's Road, we could get to the renovated 1884 Victorian gazebo.
Join us to visit the breathtaking town of Windsor, less than 30 kilometers west of London. This historic mansion has been the home of the English royal family since time immemorial, its life-giving artery is the River Thames and its immediate neighbor is the equally famous town of Eton.
Today, we visit the town of Windsor located 30 kilometers west of London in Berkshire. This little town features beautiful half-timbered houses, winding streets, and cobllestone sidewalks.
After the natural and architectural beauty of Wales we will move to the south of England. More precisely to the historic region of Sussex, where our first stop will be the town of Lewes.
Today we visit the second oldest working aquarium in the world - the Sea Life Brighton. It is interesting not only because of its history dating back to 1872, but you can also take a walk through the longest English submarine tunnel.
Brighton is the most popular and famous sea resort on the English Channel. Once, this large city was a simple fishing village which became increasingly popular among English nobility in the 18th century. They travelled here to breathe fresh sea air and relax in luxurious spa. Today, Brighton is open to anyone. Its pebble beaches are lined with souvenire stores and various attractions.
If you happen to travel to England some day, you will surely want to visit its most famous city - London. And then ask yourself a question - what will I actually see apart the famous red buses and Big Ben? Is it worth it? Yes it is! London is the city of history, art, and culture. It is ideal for people who like museums, or galleries.
Last week we have seen one of the most famous district of London, Soho. Once it was a red light district. Today, however, we move on.
After the visit at beautiful Trafalgar Square we continue to see another sights in London.
After or Genoa walks we move northwest, to Great Britain and its capital, London.
Last week you tasted something of the unique atmosphere around Piccadilly. Today we move to places that are very important to the British statehood.
Once, London was the largest city in the world. They ruled the entire British empire from here. Precious goods was imported from all around the world and ships departed for adventure and came back later. Today, people from all around the world come here – either to trade, work, admire amazing sights, enjoy local atmosphere or get a taste of world's cuisine.
