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.

I was a bit hesitant about spending the entrance price to go into Windsor Castle after reading some negative reviews but I’m so happy I did, I really enjoyed it. The rooms were spectacular and the artwork amazing. The new hall that replaced the one...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.
We caught the train from London Paddington and changed at Slough for Windsor. It was a very quick trip to Windsor- just 30 minutes. Windsor village is very quaint and the Windsor Royal Station is a compact shopping area with designer shops. Windsor Castle is...More
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.

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 royal heritage trust. Regardless of where your tickets come from, you will still have to stand on line and go through security (which, frankly, is the longest part of the entrance). I would definitely recommend purchasing the tickets in advance...but I would only purchase them from the royal heritage trust site, that way you won't pay a mark-up and you'll know that you've got the real ticket.
