    Visit Windsor Castle - Afternoon entry only with Go City®

    • With us, there are no entry fees on the day – all you've got to do is show your pass.
    • Explore the Queen’s official residence, set in 13 acres of land in Windsor.
    • Visit St George’s Chapel, view masterpieces from the Royal Collection and watch the ceremonial Changing of the Guard.

    It’s easy to see why Windsor Castle, with its peaceful courts, expansive grounds and stunning circular tower, is the Queen’s preferred weekend residence.

    Built in the 11th Century following the Norman invasion by William the Conqueror, Windsor Castle has survived sieges, wars, fires and even some of Henry VIII’s more extravagant feasting parties. 

    The castle has undergone many alterations and renovations over the years, not least under Edward III, who lavished huge amounts of money on new buildings and rich furnishings during his reign in the Middle Ages.

    Pass holders enjoy a free self-guided multimedia tour that brings the castle’s history to life, from the picturesque Round Tower to the masterpieces by Rubens, Brueghel, Van Dyck and more that adorn the walls of the opulent State Apartments.

    Visit St George’s Chapel, an architectural masterpiece that’s considered one of the finest examples of the Gothic style in the UK, and which contains the tombs of 10 former monarchs, including Henry VIII. And don’t miss the daily Changing of the Guard, which begins with a march through the town center and culminates with the traditional guard-changing ceremony in the castle’s Lower Ward.

    Windsor Castle highlights

    Round Tower - Windsor’s central keep has stood on this site in some form since the 12th Century, when it was built from wood

    St George’s Chapel - this masterful Gothic confection has presided over many a royal marriage and funeral, and houses the tombs of no less than 10 sovereigns, including Edward IV, Henry VIII and George V

    Changing of the Guard - see the traditional military parade as the Queen’s guards make their way up the high street and into the castle grounds, often accompanied by a marching band; the ceremony takes place on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays
