A must visit for all ages. Lots to see and do, if like me your are keen photographer then coming here is a must, fantastic photo opportunities , stunning grounds, lots for children to do, guided tours, audio tours and lots of staff on hand to answer any questions. Opportunities to spend lots of money in the gift shops.

Great visit to Windsor Castle, very interesting and informative. Good that your ticket is for a year, having the option to visit again within the year. Although it was August it didn't seem overly busy. Good activities for the children. Friendly and helpful staff.

I was pleasantly surprised that, on a Tuesday, the Castle tour was not at all crowded. We had a leisurely and educational tour. I would love to go back when they have the kitchen open. I usually don't like museum gift shops but theirs is exceptional. The town of Windsor is all about shopping. If you enjoy high end retailers... More

Anyone visiting the Capital has to make the extra effort and get to Windsor. The Castle and grounds are amazing. The guard change ceremony is exceptional also. Britain at its Best !

We didn't have to wait as long, only 30 mins, but on some days it can be over an hour. So do book in advance! You can have a free multi media head set, which is great and even plays clips! I mainly wanted to see the chapel which is very interesting and is busy. There are a lot of... More

Windsor Castle is a go to place , use the headphones and take your time , come back to Windsor chapel for a church service , most interesting day out , book early and on line to avoid the q .Best palace in UK by far. Check out Eton High street and Eton school nearby if you have the time.

Classic English historical site. Make sure that you see the changing of the Guard. So much history to see and if you don't know the history the audio tours help. Good value and you can get free entry for a year.
