St. Georges day celebration offered fabulous views of the castle inside and out. Saw the Guards parading and the Scout movement parading their Queens Scouts and medal winners.A great venue showing what young people can achieve with a little encouragement and Royal support.

Windsor Castle is a must as a day trip from London. Directions are clear and it almost impossible to get lost. The Castle is in excellent condition. The Royal family still uses the Castle. Make sure you view the St George's Cathedral within the Castle walls. There are also good restaurants in Winsor Town.

By visiting Windsor Castle, you get an intimate peek into the life of a Royal. You can witness changing of the guard, heirloom furniture and clothing and exquisite architecture.

It's a very pretty castle! The village surrounding is also cute. When I went there, there was some kind of parade or something. They were playing music (bif band, with brass instument) and marching. I dunno whether it's daily or just occasionally.. if you have time to visit London, make it to Windsor! ^^

Well worth the money.The staff were friendly and the audio was great. Inside is beautiful and there is so much history. An amazing day out. It will take 2-3 hours to see everything.

this is my first visit to Windsor Castle and I don't know why I have never been before. The day started with seeing a band and soldiers marching past, a colourful dash of reds and golds. The castle grounds are immaculately kept (pity a few visitors felt they had to smoke whilst walking around though). The dolls house is amazing... More
