Christmas at Windsor Castle

Christmas at Windsor Castle

This winter the Christmas display at Windsor Castle will commemorate the 20th anniversary of the restoration of the Castle following the devastating fire of November 1992.

The State Apartments will be decked with glittering gold decorations inspired by the intricate gilding work that was undertaken to restore the Castle’s interiors to their former glory.

A striking 20ft Nordmann Fir tree forms the centrepiece of the festive display at the Castle. Standing at the end of the magnificent St George’s Hall, the beautifully adorned tree is decked with lights, tinsel and colourful decorations.
