St. George's Chapel, Windsor

4.7
#2 of 9 in Sightseeing in Windsor
Architectural Building Religious Site
St. George's Chapel is Windsor Castle's house of worship, where Queen Elizabeth II attends services while residing in the castle. The daily activity of the church is the responsibility of the religious college of St. George. It is a chapel of the Order of the Garter, which watches over it. Visit the grand cathedral to view stained glass that's looked over English monarchs for centuries. The aisle, lined with ornate stone archways and carved pews, is an epic forced perspective. Purchase your admission to the chapel when you buy your ticket to the castle. Visit the chapel during a service or music recital to experience the glory of the space; these take place throughout the week, so check the website for an event schedule or ask what's on at the ticket office.

  • My husband and I who is disabled had a wonderful visit . The whole day was amazing to be transported back in time to see the castle and the chapel it was too much to take in , in one vista truly unique and stunning . The staff were wonderful with both myself and husband taking us different ways through the castle so he didn't miss and thing due to him being on his mobility scooter . We will definitely vist again .
  • Indescribably beautiful. The state rooms are stunning and St George's Chapel is fabulous. Living history of a glorious past and looking forward to an equally glorious future. God save our wonderful Queen and her family.
  • I would say one of the most beautiful churches I have been in. A definite stop even though you have probably been in many churches in Europe but still take a look inside it is amazing.
  • Beautiful chapel, it has been the site of many royal weddings. A must if you are interested in British History. No photos allowed inside.
  • You can use the stairs through the trees or just the road but I highly recommend the way through nature if you can. The climb up there is very fun and many areas are a good spot to take pictures. Moreover, the church itself is amazing. There was also a restaurant up there. In addition, the view is the most amazing I have seen in Greece so far. Definently a place that must be on your "to visit" list.
