Smooth easy process from email to door entry. Friendly helpful staff. Beautiful place to visit. You're given an audio guide which was really helpful and easy to use. It helped to understand the history behind the castle and to appreciated the items on show. Only criticism it that I got lost from the high street finding the ticket entrance. Sign posts around the High Street may have helped. I don't believe I saw any. A very lovely day, will go again!!

The history alone is worth the entrance fee. The restoration is truly stunning and to finally see the works of art that you only see in books is excellent. St Georges Chapel is exceptional and the Princess Charlotte tomb sculpture is craftsmanship beyond words. Knowledgable assistants were on hand to answer questions about items and background not covered in the very good audio guide. All-in-all a must see if you interested in History. Covid restrictions meant there's was no 'Changing of the Guard' which was a shame.

Excellent visit. I was unable to hear the audio tour as I wear hearing aids, the audio was at a pre set level and whilst I asked if it could be increased the guide helpers couldn't increase the volume. My wife said the audio guide was very good. The state rooms was really interesting and there was so much to see.
