I have visited the castle a number of times over the years with family, children, grandchildren and always worth a visit. Worthwhile booking online which although no cheaper does allow you to jump the inevitable queues. Also worth ensuring you get your ticket stamped so you can return again during the year using the same ticket.

Windsor Castle's beauty cannot be understated. The towering facade of the world's largest occupied castle is truly a sight to behold. Not to mention at 11:00 you can have a much more intimate viewing of the changing of the guard than at Buckingham Palace. Unfortunately, this beautiful castle has very little to do and 2 out of the three activities... More

I took some business colleagues from Vietnam on a castle tour and they were amazed. It is a truly remarkable place to visit and a must when you are in England.

My cousin having lived in England for quite a few years now decided to take me to Windsor Castle. And I am so very thankful that he did! I of course did not get to see inside the castle, but the part right outside - is a path of lush green and the end to which cannot be seen. Truly... More

So proud to have this in my home town. Stunning location and surroundings. Oh and the little gift shop there does the best cake! Don't miss out on it. If you're lucky enough the guards will also take a picture with you! An amazing day out.

Well what a great experience. Not the cheapest place to visit but well worth the price. You get an audio guide included. Some renovations at present but this didn't spoil our experience. Parking is expensive in Windsor though. So much history and the staff were very knowledgeable too which added to the experience.

We arrived to see the Royal Standard being taken down, we just missed Queens weekend visit! This visit was a reuse of our worthwhile annual pass (just get your original ticket validated on your first visit and you can come back all year). Amazing artefacts and friendly knowledgable staff throughout
