All forms of barbecue and camp fire are prohibited in Windsor Great Park. As a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest by Natural England, Windsor Great Park is incredibly valuable for conservation, and is potentially vulnerable. Uncontrolled fires pose a significant risk to the park, its wildlife, and the many visitors that enjoy this beautiful landscape, and are therefore not allowed.
The Windsor Great Park regulations prohibit: (26) Lighting any fire or dropping or leaving lying any light or other article including glass in such place or manner likely to set fire to any tree, bush, shrub, plant or other vegetation in the Park
Fishing Members are asked to note that Obelisk Pond swims OP7/8 have a new 'snag' off to the side of the swims. If you don your waders and look up the RH margin from 7 towards OP8, or left from 8 towards OP7, you will see a small coloured ball floating close to the rhododendron margin. This ball is a marker float for a line of sunken sponges attached to a brick sitting on the bottom some 5 yds out into the lake. It is a sampling tool for checking for the presence of zebra mussels, and will be in place for the next couple of months. Anglers are asked not to fish a margin rod to the right of OP7 or to the left of OP8 unless you have accurately measured how far up the margin you need to be placing your baits in order to be clear of the ball and sponge line.
Areas of The Valley Gardens are currently closed due to tree management operations
Timber felling and re-planting programme begins at Swinley Forest. Some tracks closed - Please follow directional signs
At times, there is likely to be disruption along the Ribblesdale horse track (Blacknest Gate to Dukes Lane). China Bridge, which is half way up the track, requires some essential repairs. This involves the track being closed at times.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused by these activities.
While exploring Windsor Great Park during the spring, summer and autumn months it is important to be aware of the risk of ticks. Ticks can inhabit areas of woodland and heathland, and some tick bites can be dangerous, so we recommend thoroughly checking for bites at the end of your visit.
The following tips will also help you to avoid being bitten:
Stick to paths and avoid walking through long grass or other dense vegetation.
Wear long sleeved tops, trousers and closed shoes (not sandals) when walking through tall vegetation.
Wearing lighter colours can be helpful, as it makes it easier to see any ticks.
Inspect skin regularly, and make sure children’s head and neck areas are properly checked
At the end of the day, check thoroughly to make sure ticks are not brought home on clothes or pets.
Use insect repellent, and use tick repellent collars on pets. Tick treatments are also available from your vet.
Windsor Great Park and Forest is an international site of conservation, and some of the UK’s most important locations for fungi are found here. As such, the collection of fungi is strictly prohibited in Windsor Great Park. The ancient trees and acid grasslands are left as undisturbed as possible to create a unique habitat for fungal growth, resulting in an impressive collection of rare and interesting varieties. The collection of fruit bodies (mushrooms and toadstools), however, threatens the future of these species, and the other species they help to grow.
We ask all visitors to comply with the following measures:
No collection of mushrooms and toadstools for any purpose is permitted.
Causing damage to, picking, or discarding unwanted fruit bodies is prohibited.
Anyone caught picking fungi will have any mushrooms or toadstools confiscated and may face prosecution.
