Big Days Out


The Queens 90th walk about. The Queen is surrounded by mass crowds.

Big Days Out:
You don’t want to miss this. When Windsor has an event everyone wants to get in on the day. Many people come to lap up the friendly expectant atmosphere. In this picture of the Queen’s 90th Walk About, thousands of people came to see the Queen up close and to take some pictures. Windsor has some amazing Big Days Out such as Royal Walk About’s, State Visits, The Order of the Garter Ceremony and Royal Guard Ceremonies. On this page we will post upcoming events that are not to be missed and are going to be a brilliant day out for the family.

Changing the Guard:
Starting around May 2019 we should see the Windsor Guard transition out of grey coat their winter coats and in to red tunic. We should also see them changing the guard every day up to September. More information here.  At around 10.50am the New Guard make their way along the High Street and you can hear them getting closer as the band music gets much louder. You will notice other people standing around and waiting also. The best place to get pictures are either along the High Street of Windsor or by purchasing a ticket and gaining access to Windsor Castle before 10.55hrs.  The ceremony takes place inside the Castle either in the lower ward or upper quadrangle depending on whether the Queen is home. Changes to the event taking place can occur – being conditional on other operational duties, wet weather and seasonal program. At around 11.20am the Old Guard gets ready to march back along the High St to Victoria Barracks.

State Visits:
It is not known yet when the next State Visit will occur in Windsor.
