Windsor castle is a big castle with the state apartments and the guard is incredible they can't smile or speak... the chapel is big and very beautiful there is many statues and the roof is beautiful too . the audio guide is a very good idea . (Written by Paul Kircher aged 12)

We visited windsor castle during a mini break we had booked. We had a very welcome treat waiting in the centre of windsor to see the band march though windsor from the castle. Although there was a queue it moved very quickly with lots of staff making it easy for you they were also extremely friendly and not at all... More

It was a shame the que was so long, but it was great inside the castle. It's a must if you are visiting Windsor!

Worth a visit even for just half a day for a glimpse into how British monarchs live. Can easily be reached by train from Waterloo or Paddington station or join one of the guided tours from London. Points of interest are the St George chapel and the Grand reception hall where state dinners for visiting heads if state are usually... More

The Castle is amazing to visit, so many beautiful things to see and gorgeous views. Free if you have a RBWM advantage card. Long queues though, so get there early and check for days for St George's Chapel entry and events.

A fabulous castle to visit, lots of history (past and present (you can see areas used by the current Royals such as the Great Hall), stunning location, easy to navigate (ramps where needed) and an enjoyable day out. For instance, many of the treasures captured during the days of the Great Empire (Tipu Sultan's throne, etc) are presented with well... More

My husband & I have not visted Windsor for the 2nd time and have not yet been disappointed. We re-used our stamped ticket from last May for free entry this time, so worth the price if you're planning to go again. And you will if you enjoy walking through enchanted and historical state rooms, viewing great armoury and wonderful paintings... More

Got there early morning so no waiting at the airport style security. Staff were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. Being disabled staff directed me to lifts and allowed family to come with me so I didn't have to wait around for them. Displays were great and our girls really enjoyed themselves, especially when one of... More

I loved Windsor Castle. I went in January, and it was absolutely beautiful. The tour is self guided, so you can take as much or as little time as you want. My boyfriend and I love history, so we probably took a lot longer than most people. Make sure to plan time for the chapel -- it often closes for... More

I really enjoyed our day at Windsor Castle. We paid just £10 a head to get in as the state rooms were closed. This was due to the Irish president visiting and the streets of Windsor were all decorated with flags in preparation for his visit. We had a guided tour, which was included in the price and was very... More
