What You Can Expect
Head inside with your entrance ticket and explore at your own pace, learning about the castle’s history that steeped into its stones. Pick up an audio guide, and listen to entertaining commentary as you amble around; learn about Sir Edwin Lutyets, the British architect who created Queen Mary’s Dolls House for the young monarch in the early 1920s, and hear about the different monarchs who furnished the impressive State Apartments according to their tastes.
Admire priceless work of art by the likes of Leonardo da Vinci and Rembrandt, and explore St George’s Chapel to discover the final resting place of various monarchs including King Henry VIII – one of the more flamboyant characters that have lived in the castle.
The Changing of the Guard ceremony takes place daily, so you can try to catch it while exploring the town. Usually accompanied by a military band, soldiers march up the high street to Windsor Castle in colorful red tunics and bearskin hats, representing the pomp and ceremony (some say eccentricity of the British Royal Family.
Meet your guide at the pre-arranged time and travel back to London in the comfort of your luxury coach. Your day trip finishes in the neighborhood of Kensington, central London, in the early evening.
A wonderful day trip, an amazing place with so must history to learn and see. A great audio guide which was easy to following and very informative
We had wanted to do Windsor Castle, but to book it through our bus tour company, it was going to be about 70 GB Pounds pp. This trip was considerably less through Viator. The tour company was easy to find, everything was just as advertised and it was a great trip. I highly recommend a trip to Windsor Castle if you are ever in London, and I would not hesitate to book through Viator again!

This trip was great! Bus ride was comfortable and quick. Trip inside walls was at our own pace and got to see whatever we wanted. Was very beautiful inside. Well worth the trip!
We had a great trip. Darren, the guide was most informative and fun. Being on time was a big thing for all of us. Our bus was comfortable. Thank you for making it an enjoyable trip.
It was great to be transported too and from Windsor Castle and to be admitted as a tour group and not have to stand in line for hours. Well worth the trip to tour Windsor Castle. Loved it!
Excellent transfer. Driver was friendly and helpfull
Second visit and enjoyed it just as much
We were very pleased with our trip to Windsor Castle and our bus driver/guide made the travel time very enjoyable.
The castle area and keep was not as we expected. Outlet mall very disappointing to see around such a wonderful historic site! Viator can't fix that so we gave you a 4 out of 5.
This tour was excellent. However, I think that it could almost be a full day. We would have loved more time to wander through the village and get a feel for the whole area. Plus, by the time I had toured the Castle, the Chapel was closed. I would have loved to see inside it. Also, our drop off point was NOT a fine minute walk back to Victoria Station where we were picked up.
But, I must say that our tour guide was excellent. Full of knowledge and made the trip fun.
I would recommend this tour to others.
