The atmosphere was very good despite the amount of tourists and the use of the handsets telling them about the history of each point of the tour helped to keep it quiet. There were still people trying to take photos but the guides explained that it was not allowed. It was very impressive to see the tombs of the royal... More

St George's is a beautiful and spiritual place. It seeps of the history of the Royal family of England. The atmosphere is poignant and the feeling of it being a place for silence and retorspection is all around as you quietly move through this magnificent building. I would love to have been able to get closer to the tombs that... More

Definitely worth an in-depth visit in its own right, the sense of history and continuity here, with the sculptures, and the seats of the Knights if the Garter in the quire: it quite stirs the marrow of an Englishman.

We paid for all visitor areas when attending Windsor Castle so we had the opportunity to visit this beautiful chapel which houses the tombs of several monarchs. So interesting.

However, best to check on the times of opening. Avoid Sundays. Hard to believe this was damaged several years ago. Restoration is fantastic. A truly wonderful place to visit. The guide is very knowledgeable too

Simply the feeling of the history alone is amazing. The chapel is stunningly beautiful. Unfortunately, photography is not permitted. Having seen and done so much in London in such a short time, the memories that weren't immortalized by my camera are already fading. I had to go through the chapel quickly in order to catch the changing of the guard.... More

Definitely worth a visit if you are in Windsor. The only downside for me was that pictures were not allowed. That was a bit disappointing but I understand.

This chapel is beautiful and very peaceful. The audio guide is very good and told me a lot about the chapel that I did not already know. It is well worth visiting Windsor Castle just for the chapel alone.
