Changing the Guard at Windsor Castle

Windsor Guard Mount

The Windsor Castle guard is provided by the resident regiment of Foot Guards, from the Household Division, in their full-dress uniform of red tunics and bearskins accompanied by the Guards Band.


Where to see the Guard Change

The new guard, accompanied by the band, march from Victoria barracks, up Sheet Street, left into the High Street, past the Parish Church and the Guildhall, then turn right onto Castle Hill by Queen Victoria's Statue and into the Castle.

The Guard Mount takes place inside Windsor Castle and you will need a ticket to the castle to see the old and new guard exchange duties.

After the Guard Mount the old guard and band return to Victoria barracks, following the same route. See map.
