Windsor Castle Unveils its 20-Foot Christmas Tree
The giant Christmas tree at Windsor Castle is simply a wonder, and it should be. It took 30 long hours and dozens of staff for it to look that good. The best thing is that the public can view the Christmas tree standing magnificently in a beautiful Castle room at Windsor through to January 3rd, so start booking tickets.

The 20-foot-high Norway Spruce tree stands as a centre-piece in St. George’s Hall. The tree was sourced from Windsor Great Park and was decked out in both mirrored and glass ornaments.
It was also traditionally decorated with super sparkly gold and red ornaments. Baubles, stars, and tassels that came in all shapes and sizes, along with gold flowers, were touchingly added to increase the tree’s grandeur.
Each year, there are always multiple trees to be spied around Windsor Castle and this year is no exception. The Palace has already teased pictures of two splendid Christmas trees on display. Another 15-foot-high tree was set up in the Crimson Drawing Room on the 25th of November.
Upcoming Christmas Activities at Windsor Castle
Other highlights of the festive season which you can enjoy at Windsor Castle, aside from the spectacular tours, are Storytelling Sessions scheduled on December 4th, 11th, 18th, 20th, and 23rd, as well as arts-and-crafts activities on the weekends, which invite children to create their very own costumes and pantomime-themed Christmas decor and perform for their families and friends.
You can also get exclusive evening tours that allow visitors to get a close-up look at the State Apartments. The package also comes with a tour of the Great Kitchen, famously known to be the oldest working kitchen in all of England (it’s been in use for more than 750 years), which is usually closed to the public.
