Is it necessary to book ahead for Windsor Castle this late in the year, e.g. Monday, 21 October?
I can’t say for certain, but you’re not in high season any longer. I was there last November and only waited in line for 10 minutes. I waited the same amount of time getting into Westminster Abbey. If that date is set in stone, then it doesn’t hurt to make a reservation. If it is subject to possible change, personally, I’d wait until I got there.
No. We went on 10/4, bought tickets and walked right in. It was not crowded at all the whole 4 hrs we were there.
We also walked right into Westminster Abbey, Hampton Court Palace, Tower of London.
Thanks, guys. We will just go out there and buy our tickets on the day. Just makes life simpler, and we are on holiday!
