Best Time to Visit Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle is a royal residence and the final resting place of Queen Elizabeth II, receiving more than a million people yearly. 

Windsor Castle gets really crowded around the holiday season. 

So, to avoid the crowd and rush, the best time to visit Windsor Castle is early morning, within an hour after the opening time, after 10 am in the morning. 

If you reach Windsor Castle within 11 am or 11.30 am, you will dodge the rush of the morning crowd and can waltz your way in without having to stand in a long queue. 

Also, the best time to visit Windsor Castle is when all its attractions like St. George’s Chapel, and Semi-Private Statesroom are open.

The Semi-private Statesroom is open to visitors from the month of September to March only, and the Chapel remains closed on Sunday.

Hence, you must avoid Sundays and months from April to August if you want to visit Windsor Castle.

Read the opening hours of Windsor Castle for detailed information about the closure of the attractions within the Castle.

Buy the skip-the-line Windsor Castle tickets and stop worrying about any crowd at all. You will get priority entry and won’t have to stand in long queues. 

Since Windsor Castle remains open even during the weekend, you are expected to face some crowds during the weekend because of the holiday. 

So, if you are looking for the best day to visit Windsor Castle and avoid crowds, visiting Windsor Castle early in the week, like Monday or Tuesday, will be ideal. 

If you are a true history buff and appreciator of fine examples of impressive architecture, then the Windsor Castle and Stonehenge extended tour from London is your ideal tour. 

You can take all the time in the world with one of these amazing trips and tours, stop at any corner and appreciate the finer details, and pose and click pictures in no hurry.  

But If you go for the Private Windsor Castle tour (exclusively your group), the crowd hardly matters to you. You will get to explore the place at your own leisurely pace.

So, the choices are unlimited, grab your suitable Windsor Castle tickets today and witness a Castle that has been part of a significant portion of English history.
