Unfortunately our visit was spoiled by the fact that several coach trips were viewing the castle at the same time as our small group. In many of the smaller rooms it was impossible to see some of the paintings. Our visit was on Sunday 2nd August at 10am, and having been to the castle before as we live locally, we... More

I visited in May with my partner and was told that choosing to add gift aid would allow us to use our tickets all year round. We went back to the castle today but were told that our tickets from our previous visit needed to have been stamped and therefore could not be used. I complained as I had proof... More

Although this is a fantastic place to visit, I must say, despite pre-booking tickets online, we found entering the castle a time consuming and badly organised process. There was a single common queue for pre-booked ticket holders as well as those buying tickets at the attraction. The long queues were a real put off for most people. The officials at... More

A lovely day out at the castle. We went as a family with our three year old who really enjoyed making a Hennin headdress. However, although we enjoyed our day it's the type of place to visit as adult only and take advantage of the multimedia tours. There is so much to look at. So much to learn. And you... More

A fantastic venue steeped in history. Great audio-visual tour facilities mean you can immerse yourself in the detail that brought this place alive. Family tickets are reasonably priced and given that you can return as often as you like within a year, a bargain if you return. Superb staff, all focused on customer service, round off the venue. Parking can... More

I took my 3 boys aged 4-9 & we all enjoyed it! There is plenty to see and do as well as lots to learn. They have free audio guides which are very helpful and our kids loved the special children's commentary which made them giggle. The state apartments are magnificent but we didn't see the doll's house - the... More

Very well organised venue for history buffs. The audio tour is excellent and there is a lot to take in at your own pace. It would be I think a good place to visit in winter when there are less tourists about but as the site is so big you are not tripping over too many other people. There are... More

Visited the castle during a recent stay in Windsor. Had a great day here looking round the Castle and all it's exhibits. If you're into history or English heritage, then this castle is a must. You are advised to allow 2-3 hours for a visit. However there is so much to see, you could easily spend most of the day... More
