Gorgeous castle, beautiful courtyards and exquisite gardens. My boyfriend and I travelled to Windsor on the train from London, which is very easy and quick. It's a nice day trip if you have some time to spare in London.

Lovely place, loads to see and learn. The changing of the guard reminds you of why we are proud of our armed forces. Brilliant day out.

The doll's house was superb but it was a little stingy of them not to allow more time to linger and see it thouroughly. The long lines were tiring and it got claustrophibic with the crowds coming in droves. The rest of the castle is a lot of walking and I don't think I would go again. Too tiring.

The castle is beautiful, and is amazing to see the changing of the guards. Very well organised, every single tourist is able to enjoy it. Everything looks more than impressive, I would come back at any time!!!

Living so close to Windsor we had been saying for a while we really should visit the castle. Today was the day of our visit & we had an excellent time. Looking at the prices on line we felt £48 for a family ticket (2 adults/2 children) offered very good value. We have been looking at various days out to... More

This is a tour everyone who visits Windsor must go and see. All the history and the magnificent wonders in this beautiful household. Very good value for the money. The wonderful Chapel is just breathtaking. Makes you feel very patriotic.

We had planned a visit to the castle after a 2 day visit to legoland. Arrived in time to take a view from the outside of the changing of the guard, well worth seeing, however we could not of anticipated the crowds that were waiting to go into the castle and after two days spent queueing at legoland could not...

Windsor castle is beautiful. Windsor castle is especially beautiful with less tourists around. So, try to avoid morning hours, when all the organised tours arrive, come well after lunch at about 3 pm. Mind it - the castle closes at 5 pm. But you will have 2 blissful hours in a relative solitude in the most enchanting grounds of Windsor.... More

One of the most beautiful castles in England that is both a museum and actively used. Nice place to spend half day in a castle to feel the way the kings and queens lived. Its location is very convenient for being close to the river and also to the high street. Of course surrounded with pubs and restaurants as another... More

The castle was beautiful and it was great to see the changing of the guards. It's a very well organised event and plenty of room for everyone to see.
