A Royal home and fortress for over 900 years, Winsdor Castle, the largest occupied castle in the world, remains a working palace today. The Queen uses the Castle both as a private home, where she usually spends the weekend, and as an official Royal residence at which she undertakes certain formal duties from Investitures to State Visits.

Windsor Castle is open to the public and visitors can explore the history and significance of Windsor Castle. Take a sneak peak via our virtual tours.
