St. George's Chapel, Windsor

(4.7/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The last bit of the castle overall and fabulous. Probably the best word is awesome (usually an overrated word, but not in this case.)  more »
  • Not very big, but a place that deserve a visit that's for sure. Buy the ticket with the windsor casle one, it will be cheaper.  more »

  • 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.
  • Beautiful chapel, it has been the site of many royal weddings. A must if you are interested in British History. No photos allowed inside.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
