Queen Mary's Dolls' House
The most famous dolls’ house in the world, full of miniature versions of fixtures, fittings and decorations from the real Windsor Castle. The Dolls' House took over 3 years and 1,500 craftsmen to complete, and even features electric lighting and flushing toilets!
St George’s Chapel
One of the finest examples of Gothic ecclesiastical architecture in England, the imposing St. George's Chapel is sure to take your breath away. As well as being the final resting place of 10 kings and queens as well as dozens of other royals and aristocrats, the chapel has hosted 14 royal weddings throughout its history including those of Queen Victoria's children.
Known as much for their immense collection of artworks as for their lavish state parties and functions, the spectacular State Apartments are home to works by acclaimed artists as varied as Rembrandt, Rubens, Canaletto and Gainsborough.
Changing of the Guard
Taking place daily at 11am from April – July and alternate days throughout the rest of the year, this colourful tradition is not to be missed.
Outside the 13 acre grounds of Windsor Castle, the town of Windsor itself is also popular with visitors.
