Description

Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world, and Queen Elizabeth II loves to spend her weekends in this stunning fortress. Built in the 11th century by William the Conqueror, the castle is still a favorite residence of the royal family.

This sprawling grand home covers an area of 13 acres and overlooks charming Windsor town – pay the castle a visit and find out why our royals have lived here for centuries!

The State Apartments
Take a look inside the heart of the working palace – the State Apartments. Regularly used for ceremonial and official occasions, the Apartments are furnished with some of the finest works of art from the Royal Collection. Try and spot the paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens and Leonardo da Vinci that hang from the walls! During the winter months the richly decorated Semi-State Rooms are added to the visitor route.

Queen Mary’s Dolls House
Specially built for Queen Mary by leading British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens in the 1920’s, Queen Mary’s Dolls House is a magical miniature residence with extraordinary attention to detail. Complete with working lights, running water and a tiny garden, this dolls house is a perfect replica of an aristocratic home. The library is even filled with original works by famous writers of the day!

St George’s Chapel
St George’s Chapel is an imposing Gothic building and the resting place for a number of British monarchs. These include Edward IV, who built the Chapel, Henry VIII and Jane Seymour, Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. Services are held regularly and this quiet church is a peaceful addition to a Windsor Castle visit.

The Changing of the Guard
This rousing, truly British ceremony takes place at 11.00am, weather permitting, from Monday to Saturday between April and the end of June. The rest of the year it takes place on alternate days, with the exception of Sundays.

Long To Reign Over Us
This September, Queen Elizabeth II becomes the longest reigning British monarch in history. Windsor Castle is featuring a photographic display. This exhibit runs from 9th September to 28th January 2016 and is included in entrance.
