What makes this tour special

Enjoy a guided tour of Windsor Castle, St George's Chapel, the castle grounds and the historic town of Royal Windsor on this fascinating half-day tour.  Windsor Castle is the largest and oldest working royal castle in the world (begun in 1070) and was reputedly the favourite residence of the late Queen Elizabeth II. She is now buried in the royal crypt beneath St George's Chapel. 

On your private tour of Windsor you will:


Meet your guide at Windsor train station and walk to Windsor Castle for a guided tour of this historic royal fortress, medieval stronghold, and working royal palace. 

Once you're through security, enjoy wandering around the beautiful gardens and grounds of this ancient castle as your guide tells you its fascinating history, from the time it was first built by William the Conqueror in 1070, to the devastating fire of 1992 to most recently where the late Queen Elizabeth II's funeral ended at St George's Chapel. 

Windsor Castle was Queen Elizabeth II's favourite royal residence; she and Prince Philip lived here during the pandemic, and the royal family use it today for ceremonial occasions such as State Visits from foreign countries, investiture and awards ceremonies. It is the largest and oldest working royal castle in the world! 

Visit St George's Chapel - a stunning medieval gothic church where many royal occasions have taken place over the centuries, from baptisms to weddings and funerals. Most recently this is where Prince Philip's funeral took place, and where the Queen's state funeral ended. Enjoy a fully guided tour of this historic chapel, and see the royal crypt where the Queen is now buried alongside her family, and other monarchs including Henry VIII (with his favourite wife Jane Seymour) and King Charles I (who lost his head!). 

Explore the State Apartments, (with an audio guide included - tour guides are not allowed to tour inside) where you will see the magnificent rooms,  including St. George’s Hall, the Grand Reception Room, the Queen's Drawing Room, and the Waterloo Chamber. Admire Old Master paintings, medieval suits of armour, the opulence of the chandeliers, and priceless furniture. 

Soak up the historic majesty of the place! Learn all about investiture ceremonies and state visits, and admire Queen Mary's exquisite dolls house that took three years to make. Learn about the late Queen's daily life here - and how she loved to walk her corgis and ride her horses in Winsdor Great Park. 

After your tour of the Castle, your guide will take you on a walk through Windsor’s medieval cobbled streets with their timber-framed houses to see the Long Walk, a three-mile avenue connecting the Castle to the Great Park, and on down to the Thames Riverside with its colourful boats and royally-owned swans.

Please note: As Windsor Castle is a working royal palace, sometimes the entire Castle or the State Apartments within the Castle need to be closed at short notice. We will endeavour to be in touch with you as soon as we have this information.
