Windsor Castle is a must see. The grounds are beautiful and there is much to see. Get the audio tour which is helpful to provide some history. If you are staying in London take the train from Waterloo station, takes about an hour.

It was one of the best spots we could visit. However, the security control was weird. When u enter the house of dolls and other internal spaces, you must show your entrance ticket again. Even though we were ultra-mega-checked at the entrance and, even if...More

A must visit place. It was my first experience going to a castle which is still functional and still in use. The oppulence and tasteful decor we're a treat to go through. One star less as I could not understand the need to keep it...More

I would recommend getting your tickets on line in advance to prevent standing in "queue" to enter.
Plan to visit in a couple of weeks with my 14 year old daughter. Is it easy for us to visit Windsor Castle on our own or should I book a tour to take us? We just want transportation to the castle and a few hours to look around the castle then back to London. Thank you in advance.
