What you can expect

Windsor Castle is the Queen's preferred weekend residence—a splendid location sitting proudly on a lush wooded hill overlooking the River Thames. With no waiting in line, this is the perfect way to explore the magnificent castle and its interior at your leisure.

Enjoy a fascinating peek at the lavish State Apartments, home to priceless works of art by Rembrandt and Leonardo da Vinci, and visit St. George’s Chapel, the final resting place of British monarchs including Henry VIII. See memorials to many historic figures and spend some quiet time wandering around this traditional chapel.

Visit Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House, a truly incredible miniature structure, complete with working elevators, running water, electricity, and tiny bottles of wine. As your audio guide describes the highlights of this extraordinary royal residence, revel in the experience of being King or Queen for a day.
