Wander into the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world
When you arrive, you will pick up a handy multimedia guide available in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, Russian, Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese. Your multimedia guide will take you on a fascinating journey through 1,000 years of royal history and the British monarchy in the Castle Precincts, State Apartments and St George’s Chapel.
Your visit will take you to the magnificent State Apartments, home to priceless works of art by Rembrandt and Leonardo da Vinci. Your multimedia guide will reveal how Edward III, Charles II and George IV changed the Castle to suit their taste. Today, you can still see the painted ceilings and wooden carvings from Charles II's reign.
Visit St. George’s Chapel, the atmospheric final resting place of former monarchs including Henry VIII and his favourite wife Jane Seymour, Queen Mary, and Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother. It is one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in England, so don't miss the chance to admire its stone ceiling and ornate walls. Breathe in the magnificence of the very chapel where Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle were wed.
The Semi-State Rooms are the private apartments created for George IV. You will feast your eyes on some of the most elaborately decorated rooms in the Castle with richly coloured wallpaper and golden furniture.
The immersive commentary of your multimedia guide includes interviews with the Royal Household's staff, who will explain the role of the Castle today as an official residence of The Queen and how it is used for official entertaining, State and ceremonial occasions. Generously woven into the tour are the treats to the senses, from the music of St George’s Chapel choir to the chimes of the famous collection of clocks.
This tour is unescorted and you will spend approximately 3 hours in Windsor Castle, giving you time to explore at your own pace and breathe in the Royal Family's grandeur
