Owner description: Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world and offers an extraordinarily rich and varied day out. Throughout its history, the Castle has been redecorated, enlarged and rebuilt. Today The Queen spends most of her private weekends at the Castle, which is also used regularly for ceremonial and State occasions. Your ticket to Windsor Castle includes entry to our exhibition Waterloo at Windsor.

Weather was beautiful at Windsor and seeing St George’s Chapel, the State Apartments etc was breath taking Waterloo Chamber is amazing after the fire about 10 years ago. Spend a whole day or 2 there, always delightful.

Third visit to Windsor Castle and it never fails to impress. Oozes so much history but still inhabited which makes it extra interesting. Our country may have slipped down the world rankings in many ways, but nowhere does history, pomp and ceremony like we do. This place makes you proud to be British.

The castle and chapel were fabulous. Don’t miss this.

The “queueing” was a joke. Asked for instructions from an employee and was pointed to the line. The 90 min we waited were filled with people randomly finding out they are in the wrong line. Had to change and start over. We were among those but kept a cool head. Tried to buy online ticket while in line which the blocked on the Royal site. But someone smarter found another 3rd party site that did sell same day w no fees. People were cutting in line and the staff managing it had no idea. People were mad (“ask 3 employees and get 3 answers”). That said, if you have the nerve then cutting in line is easy. For Pete’s sake, hire a consultant from Disney and FIX IT.

On the positive side, we saw the Queens’s dogs and got pics!

Over £40+ for two adults.....such a rip-off. Not much to see. State rooms disappointing.
Very busy always being pushed about. Leave 2 hrs max for visit.
