About

Transport yourself back to the 19th century at our fun-filled family festival.

Attractions across the Castle will include falconry and horse-riding displays, storytelling, musical performances, opportunities to dress in authentic Victorian costumes, as well as our thrilling centrepiece: a Victorian circus troupe, inspired by the travelling menagerie that visited Windsor Castle in 1847.
