The Chapel is small compared to the big Cathedrals, but the architecture and the decoration are impressive. The history importance of it is remarkable as well. It is the burial site of King George VI and Queen Elisabeth I, parents of the actual Queen. The center of the chapel has a very well crafted wood, which holds the place of... More

Check your travel agenda, and especially if you are an Anglican, plan to attend service at this very historic place. You get to walk over Henry VIII.

Beautiful stained glass windows. As a mega hot day ~ what a change for the UK ~ it was a welcome temperature change from outside! Would have liked the experience of a service, but wrong time of day :(

St. George's is inside the castle grounds at Windsor, and is a must see while there. The audio guide from the castle includes St. George's as well. No photos are allows inside, which is a great way to just sit back and take in the history without getting obsessed with seeing it through the lens of your camera. So much... More

Allow yourself time to visit this historic church while you're at Windsor Castle. Kings and Queens interred here, including George V and Mary, George VI and Elizabeth (the Queen Mother), and the infamous Henry VIII.

Even if I skipped the castle tour, this would have been a winner! Just loved this chapel for its size and beauty. Also enjoyed seeing all the tombs of past monachs. Definitely should be on everyone's list!
