Celebrate Christmas this year at Windsor Castle. The State Apartments will be transformed for the festive season, with magnificent Christmas trees, twinkling lights and festive garlands. Highlights include a 20-foot-high Christmas tree in St George’s Hall, dressed with hundreds of lights and ornaments. The tree, a Norway spruce, is sourced from Windsor Great Park.
Visit The Semi-State Rooms this Christmas, open to visitors for the winter months. There will be a spectacular Christmas tree in the Crimson Drawing Room. These rooms were created as private apartments for George IV and are now used by members of the Royal Family for official entertaining.
Special display: The Princesses’ Pantomimes
A pantomime display will present extraordinary costumes worn by The Queen (then Princess Elizabeth) and her sister, Princess Margaret. During the war years, the sisters performed as teenagers in pantomimes at Windsor Castle between 1941-44. Visitors can view the costumes in the Waterloo Chamber, where the pantomime pictures are displayed on the walls of the room.
