Full description

Established in the 11th century by William the Conqueror, Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world. It has been remodeled by a succession of kings and queens, including Henry II, Charles II, and George IV. Your ticket provides admission to the Castle, including the magnificent State Apartments, which are furnished with some of the finest treasures from the royal collection.

Among the masterpieces are paintings by Holbein, Rubens, and Van Dyck, as well as fine English and French furniture. During the winter months, the sumptuous private apartments created by George IV, known as the Semi-State Rooms, are added to the visitor route. Your admission also includes access to St. George's Chapel (except on Sundays). This is one of the most beautiful ecclesiastical buildings in England, and is the final resting place for 10 monarchs, including Henry VIII and Charles I. There is a lot to see and do at Windsor Castle, so please allow enough time to make the most of your visit, which is likely to last between 2.5 and 3 hours. The Castle is situated at the top of a steep hill, and the visitor route covers long distances, so comfortable shoes are advised.

Enjoyed the trip. We were there once it opened and there was already a queue, but it was fast moving. The staff were friendly and were there to assist when we had questions. We also managed to visit St George’s Chapel. We were excited to see with our own eyes what we always watch on the tv!

This castle is really worth seeing. You also get a free audio guide right after the entrance which is very handy. Car park is £14 for 4 hours and is about a 5-10 easy walk from the Castle. The Queen's tombstone can be seen in the chapel. At 11:00 a.m. the changing of the guard will be in the inner courtyard approximately where the entrance to the chapel is. In the immediate vicinity of the castle there are many restaurants and souvenir shops. The city is very beautiful and you immediately have a homely feeling. No wonder kings would rather live there than in London.

This ticket worked perfectly. Many people show up without tickets and wait in a long line. But if you have your ticket booked beforehand it’s a much smoother experience. They usher you to a line dedicated to people who prepaid. The castle itself is breathtaking. I highly recommend asking the staff any of your questions, they are very knowledgeable and can tell you a lot of history of the castle, the people that lived there, and explain who the random folks are in the paintings.
