On the grounds of Windsor Castle, this fantastic historic building is the resting place of many of the people who shaped our history, really moving experience. If not already aware take time to understand the Knights of the Garter, really interesting.

The staff are so helpful and knowledgable. Make sure you ask about Knights from your country! They will take you to the seat and plaque and explain how this all happened.

Of course, who would not enjoy a visit to Windsor Casstle? However, the icing on the cake is St. George's Chapel. A wonderful small chapel with a great history.

Very much worth the visit while in Windsor. The inside of the chapel is beautiful and incredibly ornate. Be sure to pick-up an audio guide before you enter, it was very helpful to learn more about the chapel while walking through it.

The only thing I wish is that photography would have been allowed inside the chapel. The stonework was amazing, intricate, and I really itched to take photographs. I was surprised that Henry VIII's tomb was very nondescript/humble (a simple stone slab on the floor, marking the crypt), considering his very flamboyant/loud life.

As a fan of Royalty and History, St Georges Chapel was a highlight on our visit to Windsor. Beautiful building and interior, amazing to see some of the crypts and stones remembering our past monarchs. A must see if you are visiting Windsor Castle.

I do not like to look at dead people, so no interest here. We went to see a Windsor Castle and skipped the Chapel. I would also skip a cemetery.
