Exhibitions
Christmas at the Castle
Now on - Jan 5, 2020

There are few better ways to get in the spirit of Christmas than to see the magnificent, 20-foot-tall tree in Windsor Castle. St George's Hall features a Nordmann Fir Christmas tree that nearly reaches the ceiling, with decorations including mirrored ornaments that catch the warmth of the thousands of lights that cover it.

You'll also be able to visit the Octagon Dining Room and the State Dining Room. In the former, see the gifts that Queen Victoria and Prince Albert shared with one another more than a century ago. In the State Dining Room, you'll be able to see a table set with silver gilt, commissioned for George IV's Grand Service.

Description

Want to see where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got married in 2018? Windsor Castle is the oldest and longest-inhabited castle on the planet - kings and queens have lived here for over 1,000 years! See The State Apartments, The Semi-State Rooms, St. George's Chapel, Queen Mary's Dolls' House and more.

Windsor Castle spans over 10.5 hectares and has been a much-loved home to 39 monarchs!

Head there and take a self-guided multimedia tour of the opulent State Apartments, which reflect the exquisite tastes of Charles II and George IV. Envy the fine French and English furniture and browse artwork commissioned by past kings and queens for the Royal Collection.

Walk through St. George's Chapel – the burial place of ten monarchs – and see Queen Mary's Dolls' House, a 1:12 scale model house that features miniature replicas of items from throughout the house and specially created items, including a tiny Sherlock Holmes story written especially for the house.

Between September and March, explore the Semi-State Apartments, which offered privacy to George IV in the 19th century. It's a right royal day out.
