“Nice day trip”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

Not a ton to do and pretty average as far as castles are concerned. Makes for a nice day trip.

“The Queen's Favourite Weekend Home - Beautiful”
Reviewed 29 February 2012

Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world. Easily accessible by train from central london (Paddington) to Windsor & Elton train station. About 30mins journey. After alight, about 10mins walk to the entrance of the castle. Visitors will need to go through a security screening before entry which we feel is a good preventive measure. After the check, my wife and I slowly strolled down the alley (benches available for you to sit if you are tired), making our way to the State Apartments and St George's Chapel. St George's Chapel is a beautiful ecclesiastical building, neatly maintain. As for the State apartments, it is huge and houses many treasures from the royal collections. Its really an eye-opener. Strictly no photo/videography while inside. Don't forget to visit the Queen Mary's Dolls House too. There is guard changing ceremony on even numbered dates excluding Sundays for Feb 2012 while we were there. One or two souvenir shop are available if you wish to purchase something back.
