Tour Itinerary:

After pick-ups in Central London by Baker Street Tube Station and Kensington Earl's Court it is under an hour's journey to Windsor, located by the River Thames to the west of London.

Entrance into Windsor Castle is included. You will receive an audio guide to explore the castle and grounds at your own pace.

Windsor Castle is in the middle of Windsor Town, a pretty town full of traditional shops, historic pubs and cobbled streets.

 

State Apartments and Queen Mary's Dolls' House at Windsor Castle

After going through security and obtaining audio guides the standard routing will take you past the moat of the Round Tower (not open to the public) up to the north terrace and the State Apartments. From the north terrace you gaze down to Windsor town below and get far reaching views of the surrounding countryside. Windsor town looks much smaller from up here.

The State Apartments form the core of your visit. Here you can view some of the finest works of art from the Royal Collection; such are the treasures that you can find yourself looking at an obscure painting only to realise that your are inches from an original Rubens, when looking at the information on it. Many of the works of art are still in the historic settings for which they were first collected or commissioned by the Kings and Queens who have lived at Windsor. The Royal Family still use the State Apartments for hosting events for those organisations of which they are patrons.

Queen Mary's Dolls' House is indeed a dolls' house fit for royalty. This perfectly scaled replica of an aristrocratic home, comes complete with miniature crown jewels and even including electricity, running hot and cold water, working lifts and flushing lavatories.

Much of the southern part was destroyed by fire in 1992 and has been restored. Arguably your experience is much the better for it, some of the rooms that were beginning to look faded and antique now really do bring alive what the original rooms would have looked like on completion.

 

St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle

St George's Chapel Windsor Castle

St George's Chapel

St George's Chapel is a working church with services every day. St. George's Chapel is open daily but closed to visitors on Sundays as services are held throughout the day. Worshippers are welcome to attend the services. The church also closes earlier than the rest of the castle to prepare for the evening service.

If you're entering the castle from early afternoon onwards it is worth making St George's your first port of call.


Within the chapel are the tombs of ten sovereigns, including Henry VIII and his third wife Jane Seymour, and Charles I. The Gothic architecture is particularly impressive, particularly the roof.

Perhaps most fascinating and differentiating the chapel from similar churches and abbeys is the order of the garter, an English order of chivalry with a history stretching back to medieval times. Membership of the Order is extremely limited and includes the monarch of the United Kingdom, the Prince of Wales and not more than twenty-five companion members.

Members are each assigned a stall in the chapel choir above which his or her heraldic devices are displayed.

 

Changing of The Guard, Windsor Castle

Changing the Guard at Windsor Castle takes place at 11:00 a.m. within the Castle grounds Mondays to Saturdays from April until the end of July and on alternate days for the rest of the year, weather permitting. There is no Changing the Guard on Sundays.
