Impressive is the only way to describe it. Audio guides were very good, and plenty of helpful attendants if required. There is no pressure and you can wander at will. St. Georges Chapel stands out, but most impressive was St. Georges Hall, which had been virtually destroyed by fire. It has been restored to it's original condition by modern tradesmen... More

If you love your English monarch history, especially Lizzy this is the place to visit. Some of the best maintained staterooms I've visited. Gorgeous gardens and chapel. I had only an hour time restriction due to travel so I whipped around it in time but you could easily spend a few hours in this place and take in the full... More

Walking around this amazing castle there is lots of history and amazing facts. Definatly pick up one of the audio tours with headphones as you can tour the grounds at your leisure. Busy when we went about 1300 on sunny Saturday but when we left a few hours later there appeared to be no queue.

I visited Windsor Castle in July 2015 with my 13 year old daughter. It was our first trip to the UK and also first trip abroad. I was worried about leaving London and navigating the train to Windsor, but it was EASY. Don't let that aspect of the trip deter you from leaving London to visit Windsor. It is about... More

It's a super day out and a proper castle - changing of the guard and all that traditional stuff. A good additional site if visiting LEGOLAND down the road. Those living in the borough can visit for free and my kids always loved 'popping' in, although some of the attractions can be pricey to visit.

We made an afternoon visit to the Castle on the hottest July day on record. The Castle buildings were cool and comfortable but more than this they are stunning. Two of our group were from Canada and were blown away by the beautiful buildings and stunning rooms. Easily a half a day attraction or more if you eat and sit... More

Worth the entry fee which if you get your ticket stamped is valid for 12 months re-entry. Beautiful grounds and rooms, my wife and I used the audio guide headphones which gave depth to the tour. We saw the changing of the guards how very British loved every minute.

Much better than expected. I had no idea that Windsor Castle is so huge! Free audio guides take you round so you don't miss a thing and can take your own time to wander and gaze. The lovely garden in the moat was another surprise. Beautiful.
