The world’s most famous royal castle is once again the centerpiece of a spectacular winter wonderland.

Windsor Castle in Berkshire is decorated for the holidays with lights, streamers and laurels.

Thanks to kind permission from The Queen, some of the castle’s most recognizable monuments have been transformed into Christmas wonders.

The Garter Tower is over 15 meters high and is illuminated with images inspired by the stained glass architecture and motifs of St. George’s Chapel from the 15th century.

The images, which also include some icy-looking snowmen, were created by talented local school children who can now see their artwork on the front of the castle.

There is also a huge Christmas tree by the tower of the castle, with white lights shining over golden baubles.
