Take the free family audio tour! Horace, a timeless tutor, and Tommy, his pupil, are your guides. They introduce you to the many magical characters who live at Windsor Castle, including Gilbert the Grotesque, Tipu Tiger and Cyril, a Page of the Back Stairs; aimed at children aged 7 to 11 years. The Education centre offers fun activities during holidays and at weekends.

Explore the palace’s State Apartments which today reflect the changing tastes of the castle’s occupants, which include Charles II and George IV. See stunning interiors and some of the finest works of art from The Royal Collection.
