This summer, visitors to Windsor Castle will have the special opportunity to take a closer look at the beautiful East Terrace Garden, as well as the Castle itself from its dramatic east side. Take part in our activities, intended for families to enjoy together.


Family explorer activities

  • For children aged 5+
  • Drop-in

Venture into the elegant East Terrace Garden, filled with roses, historic statues and stunning views. Take in its sights, then have a go at landscape drawing at an easel. No need to worry about producing a masterpiece as it is just for fun!

Please note, due to the current need for social distancing, places for the activities are limited and will be filled on a first come, first served basis.


Practical information
  • In the event of wet weather, the East Terrace Garden family activities will not run.
  • Whilst it is not possible for wheelchair users to access the East Terrace Garden, they can get a good view of the area from the Terrace itself.
  • Regrettably, the East Terrace Garden is not suitable for pushchairs. Pushchairs can be left in the secure cloakroom at the entrance to the State Apartments or on the Terrace above the East Terrace Garden.


All events at Windsor Castle will be managed in line with COVID-secure procedures. Please see our Welcome Back page for more information.
