Climb the Round Tower!!

For very many years it has not been possible to climb to the top of the Round Tower but in 2011 the Tower was reopened to visitors which is great news for all. The views are stunning and must not be missed!!

For more information see

Windsor Castle - Disabled Information

Wheelchairs are available free of charge at the entrance to Windsor Castle for use only within the grounds, though they cannot be pre-booked. Toilets for the disabled are also provided. We are told that the staff are excellent, making sure wheelchair users knew the best way to get round and helping with the lift, etc. Wheelchair access is not possible however to the Semi-State Rooms.
One visitor reports: "As soon as one of them [a member of staff] saw the wheelchair they would come over and ask how we were managing and check if we needed any help - it was one of the most helpful experiences either of us have had. I am going to write to the castle administrators to say that the staff were excellent and to pass on our thanks." Jeane

Nearby, Wetherspoons pub and restaurant "King and Castle" has wheelchair access and toilets for the disabled.

Parking. We have yet to discover the ideal solution to the problem of parking for the disabled in Windsor as there is nowhere really close to the castle, and being on top of a hill, some inclines are inevitable. We suggest the King Edward Car Park at the end of Arthur Road which offers disabled parking spaces above Level 4, which reduces the need to negociate inclines. Disabled parking is also available opposite the Taxi Rank in Thames Street, located beyond Queen Victoria Statue and Guildhall in the High Street. Entry to Thames Street at 'river level', by Windsor Bridge, is not permitted, it is necessary to drive around the town and enter from the eastern, Long Walk, side.
