We purchased tickets in advance. We took the train from Paddington Rail Station; easy and relatively inexpensive. Spent the entire day. Well worth the trip!

Easy access to the town. The castle visit was most interesting in terms of it's history, layout and content.

Windsor Castle is a great historical site to come and visit while in London. It is very easy to get to as it is walking distance from the Windsor and Eton railway station. You might have to transfer from underground to GWR trains if you're...More

Unfortunately we timed our visit just as the Castle closed for two weeks of renovations, so only managed to look from the outside. It is such an imposing structure on top of the hill, you can’t miss it. Been a long time ago so disappointed...More

Not certain which venue you plan on visiting, but you may want to check its website. They are very informative and if the answer isn't right there, you can send it an email.

London pass (8 Replies)
Hey everyone, So I was wondering if anyone here had any thoughts, reviews etc of the London Pass, specifically the London pass with the travel card. I was thinking of getting it for my trip next year but I have a couple questions and concerns. Their website says it is good at the Tower Bridge for free admission but when I look on the Tower Bridge website there is no mention of it. Will they recognise it or will using it involve a hassle at the noted attractions? I also noticed that...More

Search London Pass on these forums and you'll see many threads about this. The consensus is it's not a good deal.

You can get from LHR to Earl's Court using the Tube, as the Piccadilly line offers barrier-free access at the airport and at Earl's Court. There are lifts at Earl's Court from the Piccadilly line to the ticket hall (at the Earl's Court Road way out), plus a small ramp for the few steps up from ticket hall to street level. There are lifts at Earl's Court for the District line too, but they're not as accessible as the lifts for the Piccadilly line. Using the lifts, though, you can join an...More

Can someone tell me on average how much a taxi costs to go from a LHR area hotel to Windsor Castle? Thanks in advance!

A prebooked minicab around £25-30, whereas taking a taxi from the rank, if willing to go, will be considerably more.
