After an easy train ride we arrived in Windsor and were surprised to find that the Castle is right next to the train station. We bought our train tickets at Paddington, and also bought our castle tickets there so we saved three pounds apiece. The castle was just beautiful. The history is fascinating, not just the ancient history, but the... More

Great castle to visit. I have visited several here and in Europe, and so far this is the most beautiful, well taken care of, beautifully decorated and tourist friendly. The drive is not too bad when coming from London, and I would also advise getting some tea in the town.

3rd time staying in Windsor on business trip. Never had enough time before. Arrived early and went to castle immediately. Happened to enter as they performed the changing of the guard at 11:00 The castle grounds are beautiful. The interior is jaw dropping. So much opulence and history. Can't believe these rooms are still used today. The ceilings are something... More

Obviously Windsor is a top sight. The doll house is also quite impressive. The town and Eton are lovely as well--great weekend or day trip from London!

Free visit and free rail from Paddington with the London Pass, transfer at Slough. Classic castle with about 1000 swords and muskets to dust on the wall displays and great furniture and art. Allow a hour each side for the train, a couple of hours for the castle tour, an hour for wandering around the town. Try the rubbing center... More

Windsor castle is undoubtedly the centre of attraction of the town and a visit is essential to feel the history of the Royal Family. The highlight of the tour of the castle are the many superb stately rooms which contain centuries old works of art, furniture and other artefacts. Allow about 2 hours to see all the rooms. We were...

Absolutely wonderful place both inside and out. You can see the changing of the guards without all the crowds at Buckingham Palace and get lots of good photographs quite close. Audio guide is very helpful. Windsor is a beautiful town with lots of great shops, cafes and restaurants. Just walking around the town is a great experience.

Had a visiting family member from Europe who had not yet been to Windsor. Obviously, a visit to the castle is a must. Accompanied by my disabled wife in a wheelchair, the visit was absolutely wonderful. The staff were incredibly attentive, saw that there was nothing that we needed and in short, made the trip absolutely magnificent. Staff couldn't do... More

truly beautiful castle, worth watching to see collection of royal rooms, furniture, paintings, gold, from various countries. Well preserved despite fire a decade ago. They restored everything back. Really worth spending 4 hrs. Audio guides are well made.
