January they are closed for cleaning. Never thought to google this and we had family that had travelled from Cumbria for a long weekend. No signage outside and when we got to the front of the queue we're told because because it was Sunday we could see St George's Chapel OK fine we were there we'd made the effort at... More

Yesterday you couldn't visit the state apartments, but we still enjoyed touring the grounds. We spent 2 hours just walking around admiring the views despite the rain! The admission price was just over £10 but you can gift aid your ticket and they will then validate it into a years pass. This means that we can return and view the... More

We visited the UK last December and on the last day of our trip, we had several hours before our flight so before going to Heathrow we decided to go to Windsor for lunch and a bit of a walk around. We had a great time strolling around the shops and cafes and enjoyed lunch at the Queen Victoria Pub.... More

I was unlucky enough to visit during the two weeks you can't visit the apartments, but still enjoyed pretty much the visit. If you can, catch a free tour (every 30 minutes) from the main garden where an royal employee gives a tour explaining not just the castle but also the new daily facts from the castle and the queen...

My girlfriend and I had a really good day out here. It seemed a lot to pay but well worth it. Would have loved to see Her Maj though!!

The Windsor castle is just wonderfully great! One of the best castles I've had the opportunity to visit in Europe. Everything is nicely setup and the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. It takes quite a bit of time to see everything and read everything so a fill fay should be planned for that trip. The town of Windsor is... More

The interior of the castle was simply breathtaking. The state apartments housed amazing rooms that seemed to be just as they were when used in the past. Information was provided via audio guides throughout all sections of the grounds. There was much to see as well such as the dollhouse and abbey. A must see if you are in the... More

A visit to the exquisite Windsor Castle is definitely worth it! Located approximately an hour from London, it is rather easy to find day-tours departing from the big city. Windsor Castle is among three royal residences. It is the largest inhabited castle and fortress in the world! It has been in the royal family for over 900 years. Many of... More
