Windsor is one of the UK's major tourist destinations. Visitors flock to see the magnificent castle dominating the centre of town, and marvel at the Royal pageantry and surrounding areas, including the seventeenth-century Guildhall and the network of medieval streets. Windsor may seem a relatively wealthy town today but this wasn't always the case. The one-time home of Nell Gwynn, King Charles II's courtesan, fell on hard times during the 16th and 17th centuries when royal patronage was lost. By the later 18th century, following the creation of two army barracks under George III, the town gained a deserved reputation asd a hotbed of prostitution. Authors Carol Dixon-Smith and Dr Brigitte Mitchell, delve into Windsor's murkier past in this unique approach to the town's history, blending the serious with the not so serious, seeking out her hidden secrets.
