Attraction Information

Calling all royalty - official or otherwise! Windsor Castle is the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world, the official residences of Her Majesty The Queen and well worth a nosy!

Discover 900 years of British history across 13 acres of lush grounds. Explore the palace's State Apartments which have hosted royals over hundreds of years - like Charles II and George IV. These are all decked out in the height of luxury and works from The Royal Collection of art.

On the free family audio tour meet Horace, a timeless tutor and Tommy, his pupil. They’ll be your trusted guides today. Meet their many magical peers who also call the Castle home, including Gilbert the Grotesque, Tipu Tiger and Cyril the ‘Page of the Back Stairs’ on a tour aimed at children between 7 to 11. Plus a top tip: the Changing of the Guard takes place on alternate days throughout the year and if you can catch it, would be quite a sight!
