Berkshire - Windsor Castle

Visit the Royals at home

Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world and offers a rich and varied day out for all ages. Built by William the Conqueror in the 11th century, it has been the home of 40 monarchs.

No trip to Windsor could possibly be complete without a visit to amazing Windsor Castle, the family home of British kings and queens for over 1,000 years.

The castle hosts formal state events, ceremonial occasions and visits from foreign dignitaries and overseas Heads of State. It also has its own changing of the guard, which has been performed since 1660.

There's a lot to see - magnificent state rooms, the moat room, Queen Mary's dolls' house, and St George's Chapel to name just a few. You should allow yourselves at least 3 hours to see everything.

Visit the magnificent state apartments, which are furnished with some of the finest works of art from the Royal Collection, including paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens and Canaletto.

Take in the splendour of St George's Chapel, location of the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the burial place of 11 monarchs including Henry VIII, Charles I and Elizabeth II and one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in England.

Imagine being entertained by royalty in the semi-state rooms, the spectacular private apartments open to visitors during the winter months.
