This official Royal Collection Trust souvenir guide provides a fascinating insight into one of the British monarchy's most iconic symbols: Windsor Castle. Beautifully illustrated and full of details about this magnificent building, you'll be able to learn more about the works of art contained within the castle as well as the fascinating lives of its occupants over the centuries.

  • Explore England's most famous castle, which has been home to kings and queens of England for 1,000 years
  • Take a self-guided tour and explore over 10.5 hectares, including the State Apartments and St. George's Chapel
  • See masterpieces from the Royal Collection, including paintings by the likes of Holbein, Rubens and Van Dyck

Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world. It has been the family home of British kings and queens for almost 1,000 years and is today one of the official residences of His Majesty The King.

Occupying over 10.5 hectares, the Castle offers a varied day out for visitors, including a visit to the magnificent State Apartments and St George's Chapel. The Castle's State Apartments are furnished with some of the finest works from the Royal Collection, reflecting the changing tastes of the Castle's royal occupants, particularly those of Charles II and George IV.

Among the masterpieces on display are paintings by Holbein, Rubens and Van Dyck, Sèvres porcelain and exquisite English and French furniture. 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.

Visitors can take a self-guided tour of the Castle with a free multimedia tour. From October to March, visitors can also walk through the sumptuous Semi-State Apartments, which served as the private rooms of George IV in the 19th century.

Refreshments can be enjoyed in the Undercroft Café, situated in one of the oldest medieval parts of the Castle.

It was amazing. It’s too bad you are not able to take some pictures inside because it was breathtaking. The audio tour helped a lot.

Very beautiful historic place, excellent guide. And still, the price for a ticket is too high. It should be 20 GBP maximum.

Wonderful experience. Allow up to 3 hours and be prepared for a queue at the Dolls House. Turn left as you leave if you fancy a stroll along 'The Long Walk'😊
