Trip Planner: Europe / UK / England / Berkshire / Windsor and Maidenhead / Windsor / St. George's Chapel
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.

Was surprised to learn that the Chapel was open already. A somber place where many royals are laid to rest while others celebrate their marriage. Got to pay our respects to Queen Elizabeth II but...

St George’s Chapel is very significant for Royal Weddings, and some funerals. A very somber place, and now also the recent resting place for Queen Elizabeth II along with Prince Philip, King George..... more

Absolutely stunning! This chapel should probably be called a cathedral it's so spacious and elegant. The architectural detailing is truly breathtaking. Royalty of the past are entombed here to pay respects to. It's a very beautiful and very interesting place to pop into.
Nice, but no big difference from other chapel of this range. It is quite similar to the Kings College chapel in Cambridge. It has all the royal elements, such as (a back door used by the royal family, coats of arms from several generations and a majestic chair for the archbishop) Of course you can not take pictures and some of the employees there are very rude.
We attended the service of St.George Chapel at 5 pm. It was great and holy. The whole trip from the morning at Windsor castle is amazing esp. In the the State Apartments. Omg i was a jaw dropping, history, architecture, culture, royal lifestyle, pantings. Spectacular. The royal guards, even royal security staff were well disciplined however, friendly. All staff gave info well and proportional attentive, very knowledgeable. Impressive.
Being able to go around this chapel puts it in a much different light from having seen it on the TV. You get to appreciate more the intricate internal and external architecture (the fan vaulted ceilings being very impressive). There are a lot of memorials to and graves of former monarchs.
I really enjoyed my first visit to Windsor Castle and St George's Chapel. It was very busy so I intend to return early autumn in order to see a little more, in hopefully, quieter circumstances.
