So much to see and do, a full day is needed to take it all in. Beautiful State appartments, an opportunity to marvel at the craftmanship of the restorers who helped rebuild the damaged section after the castle fire. Excellent exhibitions are usually on display, Queen Mary's Dolls House will enchant all ages.

We went to Windsor and it was great. Its a beautiful building full of history. We took the tour of the grounds before going into the castle for the state rooms it gives you a real insight into the building and the changes made by the different monarchs over the years. The guides throughout the state rooms are really friendly... More

The castle itself I has several parts to it. The fact that it remains one of the Queen's residences gives it authenticity espececially when you see the guard changes. The collections within the gallery and state apartments are a must see. unfortunately the Dolls House was closed on the day of my visit however I can return for free an... More

So beautiful!! The rooms, the china is out of this world...and when you are reminded that a few years ago some of the rooms caught fire, you actually feel sad that some of that amazing history was destroyed but it has been so beautifully restored (in those parts). Going in the 'Winter' season was a bonus cause we noticed that... More

I visited the palace with my family and found it a great place to see how the other part of the world live. I had a great chance to see a rainbow and took this lovely picture. I hope you will enjoy it. I recommend this place because it has a lot of history.

We went to the castle initially because we thought we should rather than really wanting to go! Not really our cup of tea! Wow, what an amazing time we all had. A fantastic place and the audio guide was invaluable for finding out all of the little bits and pieces you don't know. The staff were enthusiastic and really helpful.... More

With over 1000 years of history Windsor Castle is a not to be missed attraction. The State Apartments are stunning, and if you are there at Christmas it is lovely to see the decorations. The craftsmanship in the rooms restored after the fire is amazing. St George's Chapel also has some amazing architecture and is the final resting place of... More

Windsor Castle was a smaller sized castle but it is where the Queen occasionally lives so that more than made up for it's lack of size. The doll museum was wonderful and the intricate details along the castle were fantastic.
