Windsor Castle is opening a new family attraction for the summer holidays, so you can give your kids a unique insight into Europe’s largest inhabited castle. The Conquer the Tower tour includes a climb up to the highest point of this iconic London landmark.
From 120-foot high Round Tower, guests will get a great view of the surrounding area, including the River Thames and the London skyline. These tours will run daily in August and September, with family tickets available for under £18.
Windsor Castle was established over 900 years ago by William the Conqueror, and boasts a range of historical marvels to make for a fascinating family day out. The Round Tower was built in the 1820s and features dramatic gothic-style battlements.
The 45-minute Conquer the Tower tour includes a challenging climb up 200 stairs, so visitors are advised to wear sensible footwear.
Families looking for a full-day out at Windsor Castle can get combined Windsor Castle and Conquer the Tower tickets for £60, allowing two adults and up to three children under 17 to get the full royal palace experience.
