Visit the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world, and the place where Her Majesty The Queen spends most of her private weekends, with our Windsor Castle tickets!
Discover 900 years of British history at this official royal residence, which is regularly used for State and ceremonial occasions.
Established in the 11th century by William the Conqueror, the castle has been remodelled by various kings and queens throughout the centuries, including Henry II, Charles II and George IV.
Your visit also includes admission to St George’s Chapel, the burial site of 10 monarchs including Henry VIII and Charles I, and one of the most beautiful ecclesiastical buildings in England.
With a royal palace, a magnificent chapel and the homes and workplaces of many people across 26 acres of land, Windsor Castle is an exciting and fascinating day out.
