Explore Windsor Castle
Looking to visit Windsor Castle? As one of the Queen’s official residences and one of the largest inhabited castles, it’s no wonder that it’s such a popular destination with tourists.
One of the biggest draws to the castle is that it is still fully operational, with no part of it reserved for preservation.
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
Ticketing at Windsor Castle is standard, with concessions and walk-up availability.
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.
Larger tours are likely to take a whole day but will give you a thorough look at the castle as well as the rest of the city.
