    Stunning Space
    Once we got in, there are steps at the entrance and I use a wheelchair, it’s a stunningly beautiful space and fully accessible. There was a large queue to view the final resting place of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth 2nd, but it moves steadily and the grave site is strangely tranquil. The queue also gives you chance to soak up the atmosphere and the history in the chapel.

    Chapel has atmosphere of serenity
    St George's Chapel dates from the Middle Ages. It is the resting place of many English monarchs, including the late Queen Elizabeth II. Entry is free to the public most days. The Chapel is quite beautiful, and projects an atmosphere of serenity.

    Amazing to see historical church
    Wonderful historic church to visit. The audio guide didn't like up with the route we were asked to walk in. Everyone was respectful with not taking pictures. It did feel a little hurried in spots that you couldn't stop and really look at things. The church opened at 10a so there is a little bit of time after entering Windsor Castle before you're able to go into the Chapel to visit.

    Final resting place of the Queen
    We visited the Chapel at Windsor and it was pretty cool. It was crowded and people were queued in, Once inside you were told to keep moving and you followed a path around the perimeter of the church, so there was no wandering around as you saw fit as you can do in most all other churches we visited. Very nice inside but not as ornate as St. Paul's or Westminster, but this is called a chapel, so you should not expect a cathedral. i would say most folks came to see the final resting place of the Queen and Prince Phillip. It was a very plain black marker and there was a separate individual stationed there who instructed any men wearing hats to remove them and to keep moving. Of course, no photographs were allowed inside the chapel, which was very disappointing.

    Quiet and Peaceful
    We went in twice on this trip. The second time was as part of our Castle ticket. Very surprised, and yet completely happy to be able to pay my respects to Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip and family. I had thought "crypt" and therefore not accessible, but no - a lovely side "chapel." The route around gives ample time to take in the visuals and the ambiance as well. On the first time, we went for Evening Prayers. I had hoped an Evensong, but alas, I had read the website wrong. Read carefully if that matters to you. Even though a spoken service, it was fulfilling to take part in a suprisingly intimate space. It put the family funerals in context as well. For my part, I found the service a bit rushed. As a Presbyterian, wI was grappling with the Anglican service a bit. And my not-young eyes struggled with the font in the Psalm book. In all a little hard to keep up, from a worship perspective. But, something I would do again - I'd just come forewarned and better prepared.

    A beautiful church in the heart of the Windsor Castle complex
    This is inside the Windsor Castle complex and is one of the many sights that you can see while you are there. Entry is via a purchased ticket into the complex. The ticket is good for a year so if you plan on returning at any time in the next 365 days get the stamp it only took a couple of minutes. The chapel is “down the hill” in the Lower Ward area. It is hard to miss as it is an impressive, imposing structure. No pictures are allowed inside parts of the chapel but that leaves the visitor plenty of area to take pictures outside the buildings on the grounds. Entry is through a clearly marked area off the walkway. You are guided through a specific path to see all the different parts of the church. It is breathtaking with its impressive architecture and gorgeous large stained glass areas. There is an audio tour that is included that I highly recommend and will give you a lot of information necessary to understand the history and context of what you are seeing throughout the various parts. This is a working church so access may be limited but they invite the public to participate if you are present. There is a lot to see throughout the building due to its long history and association with the monarchy. This is a must-see for anyone visiting the area!

    Historic visit
    A unique experience to walk around this ancient church which has witnessed weddings and funerals of countless Royals over the centuries. Now also able to see the Burial Vault of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip. Also fascinating to see the ancient Quire with all the banners of the Knights of the Garter.

    Full of history and a fascinating chapel
    We visited the chapel as part of the general tour of Windsor Castle. Sadly we visit in the afternoon and time was running out to properly explore and experience all that there is to see. It was wonderful to see the resting place of Jane Seymour and of course Queen Elizabeth 11. We are already planning a longer visit in the summer and hope to attend a service next time.

The chapel is exquisite, it’s a beautiful building with so much history, and being able to walk past Her Majesty’s resting place for me was a real honour. A lovely experience

We came here early, before 11am after which a queue quickly formed. The building is amazing as are all the memorials and it is well worth having a good look at everything - so many kings and queens are buried in the crypt including of course Queen Elizabeth II who has a memorial to pay respects to.

This was our fourth visit to the chapel. It doesn’t take long to walk through and is always busy. The highlight of this visit was seeing Queen Elizabeth’s resting place.

We went with a view to paying our respects to Her Majesty, which we did, but the magnificence of the Chapel overwhelmed us both.
The experience was enhanced by the willingness with which the very knowledgeable staff answered my many questions.

Beautiful Chapel, the audio guide is essential however, there's plenty of staff around to add even more detail if you ask. Photos aren't allowed, but the book in the gift shop is reasonably priced and a lovely momento

I toured St George's Chapel, when visiting Windsor Castle. First thing I notice is that St George's Chapel is much bigger than you average chapel, it's bigger than most churches I've been visited. The chapel has a beautiful architecture, lots of columns and spires decorate the exterior and facade. The interior is just as beautiful with the columns draped with banners, high windows allowing natural light to brighten up the nave. The ceiling is pretty high, and ornate with an intricate design. The chapel is the final resting place of ten monarchs and consorts, including the late Queen Elizabeth ll and her husband Prince Phillip. St George's Chapel is considered a private church for the royal family, since it's located inside Windsor Castle, one of the residences of the family. I really enjoyed walking the chapel, awed at the high ceilings and it's historic, cultural, and spiritual importance to England. Overall, I believe that St George's Chapel is a must do for any who values history, architecture, monarchy, and spirituality. If you are visiting Windsor Castle, take a short walk the St George's.
