Changing of the Guard

High Street and Windsor Castle

We say

The sight of a troop of soldiers marching up the high street to Windsor Castle – often accompanied by a band – is a routine yet strangely stirring sight in Windsor. Position yourself by the Castle just before 11am for the march-by, or be inside the Castle to see the actual changing ceremony, which takes about 30 minutes.

You say Average Rating ★★★★★

FREE fun ★★★★★

This is brilliant entertainment for young and old alike.All traffic in central Windsor is stopped for the soldiers to march from their barracks up to the castle and change places with the guards already there, all to the familiar band music. It's great and it's free! No matter howmany times we have watched this it still delights my two children.
