    Copper pans in the Great Kitchen©

    Get a fascinating insight into Windsor Castle as a working royal palace with a guided tour of the oldest working kitchen in the country, which has remained in use for 750 years.

    Built in the reign of Edward III, the Great Kitchen has been used ever since.

    See original fireplaces from the 1360s and hear about the elaborate dinners prepared for successive monarchs, including the 30 course sumptuous banquets in the time of George IV and Queen Victoria's unique dining etiquette. 

    Learn about how the Great Kitchen is used today for State occasions hosted by His Majesty The King in this unique tour of an area not usually open to the public.
