I would suggest getting here early to park your car nearer because there are lots of people. You're given audioguides and I can completely understand this as the castle is very big and very interesting. Our family enjoyed it alot

Have a big breakfast, wear comfortable shoes and take a camera because there is a lot to see. You will need at least 3 hours to see everything and try to get there at 1045 for the Guard Change because that is a spectacle in itself. Fabulous day out.

A wonderful castle, with so much to see and wonder at. Only real disappointment was we somehow missed the two rooms with the Waterloo at Windsor Exhibition. We thought we followed the route but either we took a wrong turning or it was not signposted well enough. The rest though was excellent. The rebuilt St. George's Hall was stunning, as... More

Another pricey tour, but well worth it. So much to see and the audio guide really helps to put it all in perspective. The signs leading you to the castle can be confusing though, so make sure to go into town and find a parking lot if driving in yourself. Picturesque views inside and outside of the castle even though... More

This is a great place to soak in history. It has both the modern Victorian glamour as well as the History from the Middle Ages. You will need to set aside a good few hours to get the maximum from your visit.

There is a railway station with just one platform making getting there and home again very simple. The castle has a great audio guide which explains a lot of the history and significance of the different rooms and paintings and... More

Be sure to see the Royal Apartments…wonderful. We tried to get into Evensong…but missed it by 1 minute and there is no opening the door if you are not there at the proper moment.
