We spoke to a gentleman in a car at the rear and he was kind enough to let us in and give a guided, informative tour. Unfortunately, the congregation is down to about 40 and there was talk of converting to a "disco" or something....More

The church is surprisingly large inside and has some interesting pictures of how Windsor used to look, complete with people going about their ordinary business.

This church was pretty quiet the day that I was there. Not a lot of people. It’s pretty ornate and has a great painting. I like old churches and this one is worth seeing.

Genuinely pleasant half-hour trundle around this fairly modern church (19th C?). Wonderful painting of the Last Supper (No, not that one) high up on the wall over the entrance. Difficult to photograph as you can't get near it and it's so high up. Impressive to...More

This is an unremarkable early 19 century church but it is worth visiting for the stunning Last Supper painting dating to around 1600 as well as the Grindling Gibbons carving on the front of the Royal Pew. There is an interesting paper guide too. A...More

Very nice church close to Windsor Castle and is very welcoming to all kinds of people. This church has a tall tower and is fairly ordinary in design and architecture however is still pleasant to visit.

We spent a while inside and looked at the plaques around church. you can feel all the history as you walk in. Quite pleasant! Beautiful trees on the grounds as well.

Lovely church in the middle of Windsor. Quite simple in design and a great place to escape the crowds for meditation. Seems to be a real community church helping local people and charities. Amazing painting of The Last Supper. For me the highlight.
