    The Christmas tree in St George's Hall©

    Step into Christmas and 1,000 years of royal history at Windsor Castle. 

    This winter see the State Apartments decorated for Christmas. The festive display includes a magnificent centrepiece, the 25-foot high tree in St George's Hall, taken from Windsor Great Park and dressed with hundreds of twinkling lights and ornaments.

    This year’s Christmas display celebrates the 675th anniversary of the Order of the Garter, the oldest order of chivalry in Britain, which was founded in Windsor in 1348.

    In the Waterloo Chamber, the 160-foot-long dining table is laid with porcelain tableware from the Garter Service.
