The festive season is officially underway – and one of England’s most opulent homes, Windsor Castle, has unveiled its Christmas decorations for 2021. Last week, Royal Collection Trust transformed the residence, bringing festive lights and garlands – and of course, no shortage of Christmas trees.

Until January 3, everyone who visits Windsor Castle will see the State Apartments in all their Christmas glory, including a 20-foot-tall Christmas tree from Windsor Great Park. Standing in St. George’s Hall, the towering evergreen tree, adorned with mirror and glass ornaments, is an utterly magnificent sight.

The castle’s spectacular Semi-State Rooms, which served as the private apartments of George IV and are now used by the British Royal Family, are also worth a visit. If you go, be sure to stop by the Crimson Drawing Room, which has its own large Christmas tree.

Other festive season highlights at Windsor Castle include storytelling sessions on 4, 11, 18, 20 and 23 December, as well as weekend arts and crafts activities, which invite children to create their own costumes and pantomime. themed Christmas decor and show for their families and friends.

The castle also offers exclusive night tours which give visitors a closer look at the state apartments, as well as a tour of the Great Kitchen, the oldest working kitchen in all of England (it has been in use for over 750 years old!), which is usually closed to the public.

And if you’re looking for a place to grab a bite to eat, can we suggest the Undercroft Café, which is Windsor Castle’s oldest surviving space? Even better, they offer a holiday-themed menu throughout December.
