Windsor Castle was built about 1000 years ago. It has 1000 rooms. And it is the biggest inhabited castle in the world. There are several locations from which you can photograph this amazing royal residence. Check out our favourite Windsor Castle photo spots with images below.
Windsor Castle Long Walk
The best location to photograph Windsor Castle is the long walk. It is a gorgeous foot path that stretches for more than 2.5 miles (about 4 km). If you walk for about 10-15 minutes up the hill you’ll get a great view of the castle.
This path is open to the public. Thus you don’t have to pay any admission fees to get to this iconic viewpoint. The path is located behind the castle. And it is just breathtaking.
Photo tip: Use a longer lens to compress the background. This will make the castle appear much bigger in relative to your subject.
Another great location on the list of Windsor Castle photo spots is the city centre. If you don’t have an entrance ticket you can always take some pictures outside the castle. Take some close ups or include a street view with people and the busy life of Windsor city.
Inside the castle walls
Windsor castle is huge! You do need to buy an entrance ticket to get on the territory of the castle itself. There are many wards in the castle, although, not all of them are open to the public. But inside the castle walls it feels like a small city inside a city. There are plenty of photo locations. St George’s chapel (where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got married) is one of them.
Please note that inside the castle apartments photography is not allowed .
