Windsor Castle is the official residence of Queen Elizabeth II. It has been home to English Royalty for almost 1000 years. The stunning 13-acre site is the largest and oldest occupied, working castle in the world.

The castle hosts formal state events, ceremonial occasions and visits from foreign dignitaries and overseas Heads of State. Windsor castle has its own changing of the guard which has been performed since 1660.

St George’s Chapel is the home of the Order of the Garter, an annual event founded by Edward III in 1348.

Windsor Castle is famous for ceremonial and State occasions. Official visits from overseas Heads of State are recognised by State Banquets in St George’s Hall. Silver-gilt and porcelain from the Royal Collection adorns the magnificent dining table seating 160 guests.

The Order of the Garter was founded by Edward III in 1348 at Windsor Castle. There is an annual thanksgiving service in St Georges Chapel with full robes and insignia. Headed by the Queen, senior Royal Family members join the 24 knights selected in recognition of their work.

Every knight or lady of the garter is recorded by a coat of arms mounted in St George’s hall.

The changing of the guard at Windsor Castle takes place on the lawn of the Quadrangle outside the Royal Apartments when the Queen is in residence. At other times, the ceremony takes place in the Lower Ward with leaving Regiment and entering New Guard using the Henry VIII Gate. (Holiday Inn Maidenhead and Windsor)
