A very nice day looking around castle. Im interested in history so this was ideal for me. The staff were so helpful and polite and nothing was too much trouble. I also witnessed staff being proactive when it was evident people need assistance; one example was helping a wheel chair user. I very much would recommend a visit to Windsor Castle.

The organisation at the castle was excellent from start to finish. Any concerns re COVID we’re soon dispelled as numbers visiting the various exhibitions were well controlled. Staff were very helpful & only too willing to answer any questions. A thoroughly enjoyable & memorable visit for both ourselves & granddaughter.

Windsor Castle was fantastic but we were very upset to find when we arrived that we had not bought tickets from the official website which meant we had to queue longer to get in and our tickets were not entitled to the offer of being able to return within a year free of charge. We would never have bought them from an unofficial website but staff at the castle said a lot of people are conned into using this website as it mimicks the official website so well. Therefore it was not good value for money as we can only visit once with tickets bought on this website.
