Windsor Castle, The Queen’s Favourite!

Visit Windsor,  the Queen’s favourite weekend home.  (It’s nice to have a choice, don’t you think?!)

Windsor Castle has been a Royal home and a fortress for over 900 years.  The Castle remains a working palace today.

What to See

Windsor Castle covers an area of 26 acres and contains the royal palace,  the famous Round Tower,  and a magnificent chapel.

Visitors to Windsor Castle can now climb to the top of the world-famous Round Tower,  one of the nation’s iconic landmarks.

 

St George’s Chapel is one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in England. Within the chapel are the tombs of ten sovereigns,  including Henry VIII and his third wife Jane Seymour,  and Charles I.

The magnificent State Apartments are furnished with some of the finest works of art from the Royal Collection,  including paintings by Rembrandt,  Rubens,  Canaletto and Gainsborough.

Upon arrival at Windsor Castle,  your driver will  help organise your tour and provide any other assistance you need.

Beyond Windsor

You can spend your entire time at Windsor Castle or you may choose to explore some of the surrounding countryside.  Some possibilities are:

Windsor Town lies at the gates of Windsor Castle.  The oldest part of the town is located immediately opposite Henry VIII Gate (the exit of the Castle). There are several cobbled streets here dating from the 17th century.

Windsor Great Park is a vast area of parkland and forest starting at the gates of Windsor Castle.  Highlights of the Park include the Long Walk,  built in 1688,  which follows a straight path from the Castle to the statue of the Copper Horse on Snow Hill,  and also Savill Garden and Virginia Water.

Runnymede is a famous historical site which witnessed,  in 1215,  King John’s sealing of the Magna Carta. Set within the beautiful natural landscape are various memorials by Maufe,  Jellicoe and Lutyens. The memorials commemorate moments in world history and provide the perfect countryside setting in which to remember and reflect.

Eaton College was founded in 1440 by King Henry VI and is one of the oldest schools in the country. Its historic buildings are an integral part of the national heritage.   Visitors can experience the beauty of the College,  including the ancient buildings of School Yard,  the College Chapel,  the Museum of Eaton Life,  and Eaton’s Natural History Museum.
