Valley Gardens minibus shuttle service

Journey to the Valley Gardens on a free minibus shuttle service operating from The Savill Garden coach park on selected dates in May.

With the Punchbowl in the Valley Gardens just coming to its peak, this is a great opportunity to get outdoors and discover more of Windsor Great Park.

Even if the Punchbowl display may be turning towards the middle May there is still plenty to discover in the Valley Gardens, including views of Virginia Water Lake from the Plunkett Memorial and the seasonal displays from the National Collections of rhododendron and Glenn Dale azaleas.

To explore more of Windsor Great Park, why not consider walking one of the journeys, at an approximate distance of 1 mile/ 1.6km, and discover Obelisk Pond, the Cumberland Obelisk and the Guards Polo Ground along the way?

For the comfort of all those using the service, dogs are not permitted on the minibus with the exception of assistance dogs.

A row of school children in red jumpers and grey trousers stand inside holding sheet music and sing towards the camera. Behind them is a brick pillar and arches.
