Need some inspiration for 11th February? The Queen started paying income tax on this day in 1993 – as a result of the disastrous fire that gutted a large part of her State Apartments. Everything was restored to its former glory for £36.5 million – why not take a day trip to Windsor Castle and see for yourself?
