It is a short train ride outside London and will at least be a day long trip. Moving away from the hustle and bustle of London will be a welcoming change as well. The castle is a short walk from the station and after you go through the security checks do remember to pick up the audio guide which is... More

If you are staying in London and are curious if it is worth the trip... absolutely. Short train rides from Paddington station (amazing place to see) to Windsor. I would suggest doing this mid trip. The reason is that London is amazing, busy, hustling etc. The trip to Windsor is a very pleasant train ride, and the Castle and surrounding... More

Must visit attraction on your visit to London. It has an easy access and lots of souvenir shops around. The best part is the entry ticket remains valid for 1 year and your next visit within 12 months period is free.

If you are visiting London, Windsor castle is definitely worth at least a day trip. It is an easy hour or so train ride from London. The castle is a short, five minute walk from the train stop. Make sure to arrive early to avoid the worst lines. The grounds are beautiful and overlook the quaint town of Windsor. Numerous... More

for a person, like me, who loves history Windsor Castle is a must visit. The amount of history you get to see in one place makes this a very special stop.

Windsor Castle was an amazing! Words cannot describe the beauty of the architecture, the cleanliness of the grounds, and the knowledge of the staff! The docents positioned throughout the castle were always willing to answer any questions about the rooms, decor, and history of the building. Each docent had a story to share that could not be found in any... More

Windsor Castle is a great place to visit from so many perspectives. The history of the place, and the treasures it holds are beyond compare. The art works were by some of the greatest artists in the world and the portraits of royal family members were fascinating. Plan to spend as much time as you can as I saw it... More

Our last tourist destination before the trek home was Windsor Castle. It is hard to describe the sheer grandeur of this place. It is massive and steeped in history where ever you look. Inside the opulence is overwhelming. Even the grass looks like some one has been down on their hands and knees to comb it. Of course if you... More

Cost us around £45 for the three of us (2adults 1 child) but these tickets (if... More
