We took a cab here from London which is about a 50 minute ride. The lines weren't too bad at opening that Friday morning. The tour of the State Apartments was amazing. The feature on the tour right now is The Royal Wedding of the...More

If you go to Windsor you must go to the castle. A really informative, fun, active day out. I will be going back.

We visited Windsor castle on a winters afternoon in December, which was perfect as we managed to see the Christmas decorations as well as the Royal Wedding exhibition!

Visited yesterday and waited until 1.30 pm to go in. Certainly paid off as no crowds and no queues. Had Pre booked tickets so straight through to security. There are several beautiful Christmas trees but the main one has to be at least 20' tall,...More

Our last visit to Windsor Castle was in 2005 and it was just as interesting on this visit as it was the last visit. It would be nice if photos were allowed indoors.

We visited Windsor Castle and the state apartments with a gift experience voucher, it was really easy to get in (no queues) and went to St George's Chapel first having picked up an audio handset. The Chapel is beautiful and the staff on duty were...More

Lured by Harry and Meghan’s nuptials, we ventured from London for a day trip. Well worth it! The gown was the least of it, really, the castle state rooms and grounds were stunning, and we thoroughly enjoyed the charming town of Windsor. One of my...More

Treated ourselves to an evening tour of Windsor Castle and it was well worth the money. Rather than being packed together like sardines during the day, a party of about 20 of you are given a 90 minute guided tour at a leisurely place, plus...More

You can bring luggage in but it will have to go through airport-style security checks. You can store it in the cloakroom whilst you're in the State Apartments, but have to keep it with you for the rest of the tour.
