Here is your chance to visit a living royal residence, the largest and oldest inhabited castle in the world! Just 50 minutes by train from central London, you will arrive at the charming town of Windsor, where her Majesty the Queen spends most weekends.
A visit to Windsor is a chance to experience being a royal for a day. What does their home look like? Where do they entertain? What do they eat? What do they do in their spare time? Discover it all to the backdrop of a beautiful historic English town on the banks of the River Thames.
Walking up to the castle from the train station, you will see the historic shops and buildings that have been serving the Royal Family for centuries. If you know where to look, there are secret tunnels connecting the town to the castle for naughty royals of the past, who wanted to escape royal duty.
In the castle you will explore the large grounds. The walls hold 1,000 years of history and your kid-friendly expert knows just how to bring the stories to life. Three times a week (Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays), the Changing of the Guard takes place at Windsor Palace. This marks the official passing of responsibility from the Queen’s Guard to the New Guard. This magnificent show of British pomp and circumstance will be much easier to see here, without the crowds typically found at Buckingham Palace. Can you tell which regiment you are watching based on the descriptions given by your royal expert?
A hidden gem in Windsor Palace is Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House, a replica 1/12th the size of an early 20th century house. Made by the top craftsmen of the day, it includes a library of leather-bound books, designer furniture, bottles of wine, running water, working elevators, and electricity. No detail was too small to be included in this masterpiece!
Perhaps one of the most exciting parts of your visit will be the State Rooms. This is where the Queen welcomes foreign leaders and other members of the royal family during State Banquets. Not only are these rooms opulent and ornamented, but this is really where presidents, prime ministers, and royals interact! Visitors rarely get to go inside royal palaces, let alone see this kind of stuff!
Not to be missed is the Chapel, where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan, were recently married to a worldwide audience of 3 billion. The Chapel is home to the last generations of Royals, as well as some famous names from the past. Hear about the extraordinary funeral of the arrogant Henry VIII, and why he chose to be buried with his third wife.

IMPORTANT NOTE: the State Apartments are closed on April 16th & 22nd, May 4th, 6th & 7th and June 14th and 16th. St George’s chapel will be closed on Sundays for mass and on April 8th, June 12th and 13th.
Can we travel by private van instead of by train?
Yes. We recommend taking the train to avoid traffic jams along the way (and because we just think it’s fun!), but we can provide you with a private van and chauffeur if you like. And if you combine this tour with a visit of another location, transportation will be done by private van. Just send a message to our superhero team here to get a quote.
Can we stay longer by ourselves after the tour is over?
Sure thing! Your return tickets to London are valid the whole day, so there’s no rush. We highly suggest having lunch in the charming town of Windsor, or just across the bridge to the historic town of Eton, which is home to Eton College, one of the most prestigious schools in the world (it has been attended by several British Prime Ministers, as well as Prince William and Prince Harry!). You can see its students walking around town in their uniforms, including black tailcoats, white ties, and black top hats. The banks of the town are always host to the bevy of graceful white swans that live there.
Can we combine this Windsor Castle Family tour with any other locations?
For sure, our superhero squad would be happy to combine this activity with a visit to Hampton Court Palace or Stonehenge. Just send us a message here and we’ll make it happen!
Is this tour suitable for all ages?
Yep! Our guides are awesome storytellers and can adapt their speech to every age. There is something at Windsor Palace to pique everyone’s interest!
Will we see the Queen or another member of the Royal family?
While Her Majesty the Queen and other members of the Royal family visit Windsor often, it is unlikely that they will be seen, as they often remain in sections of the castle off-limits to visitors. Even royals need some privacy every now and then!
