Owner description: Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world and offers an extraordinarily rich and varied day out. Throughout its history, the Castle has been redecorated, enlarged and rebuilt. Today The Queen spends most of her private weekends at the Castle, which is also used regularly for ceremonial and State occasions.

The castle is absolutely impressive. Very well preserved and it's huge. It would take an average of 2-3 hours to see it all. Also, very important to book the tickets online. The lines can be very long, especially on weekends. Other than that, it's absolutely worth the money and time.

We were lucky that as disabled we were ushered past the long queues and paid a discounted entrance fee with my companion getting in free normal price is about £21 each the castle is very big with lots to see there are some seats inside so you can have a rest all the way round there are staff who you let know if you have finished in that section then you are taken behind the scenes to lift access avoiding all the stairs you might catch a glimpse of the royals we did and saw Edward and family entering the private area you can spend a couple of hours looking round

Well worth a visit, the staterooms etc are wonderful. However expect a long queue to get in made worse by the security checks at entrance . One felt they weren't Gatwick!!!

I've toured a number of castles, each impressive in their own rights, but Windsor is especially awe inspiring in its grandeur. It is a royal residence and is meticulously maintained. The treasures and history within are unmatched. Truly magnificent. Even the little town of Windsor is darling, with shopkeepers prepared to serve tourists from around the world. Definitely worth the trip!

Weather was beautiful at Windsor and seeing St George’s Chapel, the State Apartments etc was breath taking Waterloo Chamber is amazing after the fire about 10 years ago. Spend a whole day or 2 there, always delightful.
