#2 of 6 in Historic Sites in Windsor
Religious Site · Architectural Building
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.

  • St George’s Chapel セントジョージズ教会 is the large church within the Windsor Castle complex. Construction was started in 1474 by Edward IV and finished in 1525 by Henry VIII. It is known officially as the.....  more »
  • The building itself is stunning and so much to see. Sadly no photography is allowed. The audio tour is a bit vague - I’d like more about the kings and queens buried there. So many people are allowed.....  more »
  • Very nice chapel where royal wedding happen. Went when I went to Windsor Castle. Would like to go again one day.  more »
  • Great docents. Great organ music. A nice opportunity to explore on our own. This really should be your first stop on your Windsor Castle tour. No photos inside the chapel! Plan on a 30 minute visit unless you are there for a service. It is an active living chapel.
  • Prince Harry and Meghan got married at this chapel. It is very beautiful especially the inside but unfortunately no making of photos is allowed. The entrance fee includes seeing the whole Windsor castle because the chapel is inside the castle premises. It's very beautiful
  • Go mid week when not so crowded. Magnificent but understated. So full of history and even more interesting to see after the recent wedding and christening there. There are some famous tombs there and flags for the Knights of the Garter. Allow about 30 minutes to soak up the atmosphere
  • Beautiful chapel, many internment stones on the floor, including Henry the VIII's, so keep a lookout on the floor as you walk around. You can pay your respects, if you choose to do so, to the many monarchs whose resting places are within the chapel, including the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret. For a part of modern history, it was interesting being in the same room where Prince Harry and Meghan were married.
  • A tour of Windsor Castle isn't complete without a walk through this chapel. Burial sight of many of the UK's Royal Family - the tomb's and cover stones with the names of Britain's powerful really help you appreciate just how much history is contained here. There's no photography allowed inside, so you'll just have to take your time as you walk through and allow the weight of it all to impress upon you.
