We were advised to go in the afternoon as mornings tend to be busier. We went in at 1300 hours and stayed for 3 hours, which was about enough time. Really great atmosphere, lots to see and do for all ages. We particularly enjoyed the...More

History, art, culture and breathtaking views. The state rooms are impressive in the architecture but you really must take the time to view the displays or it would be easy to miss such gems as the bullet that killed Nelson. The staff on hand are...More

Enjoyed the tour of the castle. We also visited St Georges Chapel but Queen Mary's Doll House was not available to view. The route is well organised and there is always someone who will show you the way.

You will not be disappointed - this castle and setting are like in a fairy tale. Windsor is a magical place , with many quaint shops, restaurants and hotels.

Very dissapointed!!! Do not visit! Comparing to other castles, we paid toooo much to see only 3 room which are named “state apartments” and few streets! No garden open to the public. It doesn’t diserves its money! It will take an hour to see everything...More

This is a fantastic castle. Amazing views, set in a beautiful town too. Don’t miss the change of guard parade through the town most mornings if you visit. Queue early - it can get very busy if visiting the castle.

Hire a car and guide as there aalot of many interesting things to see on the way out and back. Castle tours point our great and ancient things. Worth the trip.

You can view the outside of the castle only without purchasing a ticket... however the best parts can only be viewed by purchasing a ticket .. it’s expensive at abt gbp 22.. but worth it.

Great question. I purchased our tickets online, but purchased directly from the Windsor castle site. Frankly, I'm a little surprised that one can buy tickets (other than through a tour group) with anyone OTHER than the... More
