The Areas which are open to the public are SUPERB, a must to experience.

For 3 adults, you will be looking towards spending over £60 to explore the Castle (however, if you get a stamped card at the end of your tour, you can revisit Windsor castle for 12 months for free which is a great...

Went here with my wife and two toddler daughters. Lovely, friendly staff who were very helpful. All displays were really well maintained and more importantly, the audio guides were very informative indeed. The only thing I found could be improved upon is a small tea/coffee/water shop or stall. Her Majesty was onsite, which led to my 3 1/2 year old... More

The great thing is that you can get your cards stamped for a years free admission so we went back the next day to watch the Changing of The Guards. The history and heritage of this castle is amazing. Its a stunning castle which takes up a worthwhile 3 hours of your day. On a good day you can see... More

The exterior is very forbidding and grand, as a castle should be, and the interior is stunning and impressive. The doll house is just incredible, and if you're lucky like we were--you'll see the flag raise--and Queen Elizabeth arrives. If you go in the spring, the daffodils are blooming all over the little hill that supports the round tower. St.... More

The castle is amazing. It must be on your 'top 5' visit in England. It's very close to Heathrow, in fact the only noises you hear at this peaceful place come from airplanes. Served by 2 rail stations at walking distances, Riverside and Central, it's an hour ride from London Waterloo and 10 minutes to Slough to further connections of... More

Our high school group trip to Windsor was enjoyed by many, particularly the beautiful grounds and rich history. The audio tour was great for adapting how much or how little you dive in. We spent two hours touring, and barely scratched the surface, could have easily spent he whole day exploring the castle and surrounding town.
