Display to mark Battle of Waterloo bicentenary coming to Windsor Castle

A special themed display will come to Windsor Castle in the New Year to mark the bicentenary of the Battle of Waterloo.

Waterloo at Windsor: 1815-2015 will include an exhibition of artefacts, a trail and a new multimedia tour through the State Apartments.

The centrepiece will be the magnificent Waterloo Chamber, commissioned by George, Prince Regent (the future George IV) as a lasting monument to the battle at the heart of Windsor Castle.

The Battle of Waterloo was fought nearly 200 years ago on June 18, 1815.

The display will run from January 31 until January 2016.
