At Windsor Castle, for example, they have put together a display of prints, drawings, etc. that explores the battle and its aftermath, and combined this with a themed trail through the State Apartments (always worth a visit anyway!). The trail highlights various objects associated with Waterloo, some taken from the battlefield itself; and you can even see Napoleon’s red cloak seized from his fleeing train.

The display and trail will be in place throughout 2015 so plenty of time to arrange a visit to one of Her Majesty The Queen’s official residences and the oldest inhabited castle in the world.
You can even combine a visit to Windsor Castle with Hampton Court Palace, plus a nice lunch in a typical English village pub or nearby restaurant. Hampton Court has its own reason for celebration this year – it’s 500 years Henry VIII’s chief minister, Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, began building the Tudor Palace, scene of so many pivotal events in our history.
