Categories: Architectural Buildings, Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
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.

Sometimes, after you have seen enough cathedrals and buildings in England, you might be tempted to skipped some no matter how great the Gothic architecture is. But this one at Windsor Castle, the St George’s Chapel holds very important tombs of 10 Kings and Queens of England, including the famous King Henry VIII. If you are on a hunt for Tudor history and heritage, this is the place to be.
Amazing gothic style church, make sure you visit if at Windsor Castle. Last entry is at 4pm.
A very pretty and historic church full of plenty of history. Perhaps has more meaning and significance for those who are religious.
Beautiful chapel and well worth the walk through
