Take the free family audio-tour or ask for one of the free family activity trails to help you get to grips with the castle, suitable for 7-11 year olds. You can download them in advance from the website or pick them up at the Admission Centre.
Check out the themed trails and Saturday-morning interactive family guided tours, plus workshops and activities at weekends and in school holidays.
Don’t miss one of the world’s most famous dolls’ houses – Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House, which two 1,500 tradesmen and artists more than three years to construct!
Visit the State Apartments, home to some of the worlds’ finest works of royal art, including some Rembrandts and Rubens, but note that buggies aren’t allowed.
See the impressive suit of armour that once belonged to King Henry VIII, then visit the chapel where 10 kings are buried.
Take advantage of the free re-entry bands to go and discover nearby Windsor Great Park, where the Queen sometimes rides and Prince Charles plays polo. Containing a deer park, woods, streams and ponds, it often hosts family events, such as treasure trails and horse-and-cart rides.
If visiting with babies and young children it is important to note that pushchairs are not permitted in certain parts of the Castle; you can check these in and get back when you finish the tour. Baby carriers and hip seats can be borrowed free of charge (subject to availability).
