Visiting Windsor Castle

Changing of the Guard
This is a very popular point of interest at Windsor Castle, similar to Buckingham Palace. If you’re keen to see the site on your next London visit, be sure to plan your trip between April and June when Changing of the Guard takes place daily at 11 am.

St George’s Chapel
St George’s is a large pull for visitors not only to Windsor Castle but to London. It is well known for its Gothic architecture and as the home of the tombs of ten sovereigns, including Henry VIII. Today, it is celebrated as one of the oldest operational churches, with a service each day.
Windsor Castle has also become more widely known as the venue for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in St. George’s Chapel, in 2018.

Windsor Castle Tours and Tickets
If you plan to visit the castle during the summer months or on a weekend, it’s a good idea to buy tickets in advance. This means you’ll get to skip the queues at some of the busiest times of the year.
There are many short and half-day tours of just the castle, however, because Windsor Castle is in such close proximity to London, there are often tours which include both the site and other landmarks throughout the city.
