Queen Mary's toy's house a highlight, as was the archives display - loved Queen Elizabeth II's diary when she was a child. Take one of the guided tours; our guide was fantastic!

Visited Windsor Castle yesterday in an electric mobility scooter and it was brilliant. As long as your scooter is small enough, i.e. mine dismantles and fits in my car boot, you can use it throughout the state apartments, using lifts not open to the general public. A really good trip and the staff couldn't be more helpful. RADAR keyed toilets... More

The audio guide was definitely worthwhile, bring your own earbuds to make it better to use. Upon entry, your going to spend a bit of time outside, getting a perspective and history of the castle and its grounds. The views along the walls shows a big reason why it was built where it is. You might also get to see... More

Simply a must. The guided tour of the Castle was simply excellent when accompanied by the hand held information guide. The staff could not have been more helpful and the 900 years or so of constitutional history was spellbinding. The Royal Apartments and rebuilt areas following that dreadful fire are a joy to behold and the exhibits in the Archive... More

Visited 19/10/14 combined with a visit to Lego-land. Amazing displays and sumptuous rooms steeped in fascinating history and inside stories from current royals with the audio guide. Get in the queue early for Queen Marys dolls house as its very popular and slow moving as the detail of the dolls house deserves some pondering. The staff were very obliging when... More

This is a fabulous castle! It's huge and well kept. It's famous and there are lots and lots of tourist stops throughout the castle and neighboring town. It is definitely worth a visit! The Queen's toys were a lot of fun for our young daughter. The chambers were incredible and spacious and done up beautifully! It truly gave us an... More

The sight of the castle as it comes into view is absolutely breathtaking. On our arrival we were able to collect our tickets which we had prebooked online quickly and without fuss. We were offered audio guides free of charge, these are easy to use and really informative. The castle is one filled with the most beautiful paintings and Royal... More
