There’s nothing quite like the British pastime of setting up a picnic on a soft green lawn under a big blue sky, and enjoying lunch in the open air.
Enjoy the grandeur of Virginia Water lake from the picnic tables in front of the Pavilion or from the grassy shores near historic features such as the Leptis Magna Roman Ruins and 5 Arch Bridge. The trees surrounding Wick Pond provide welcome shelter on a warm summer’s day, and nearby benches are perfectly positioned to admire the 100 foot Totem Pole on Canadian Avenue.
Obelisk Lawn offers the perfect picnic place for families and friends alike, whilst toddlers and younger children can enjoy the Obelisk Lawn play area. There are plenty of tables and benches dotted around the impressive Cumberland Obelisk, with views over the tranquil waters of Obelisk Pond.
The restaurant, shop, changing facilities and toilets at The Savill Building are also located just a two-minute walk away, next to The Savill Garden car park. Please note, we do not allow picnics in The Savill Garden although Obelisk Lawn is very close if you wish to combine a visit to The Savill Garden with a picnic.
Take in the stunning views of our resident Red Deer and across the sweeping green pastures from your vantage point as you enjoy your picnic.
A newly-restored area which offers inviting benches and a classic arbour where you can sit and enjoy your picnic at the edge of the lily pond.
A vast green meadow for you to enjoy your picnic with friends and family.
Please remember barbecues, or any type of fire, are strictly prohibited in all parts of Windsor Great Park, as are gazebos. Once you have finished your picnic, please use the bins provided or take your rubbish with you. Help us to keep Windsor Great Park a special place for all our visitors to enjoy!
