Due to a fallen tree at the Cascade, there is no access on the south side of Virginia Water lake between the ruins and the Virginia Water Pavilion.
You will not be able to do a full walk around the lake until the work is completed. From Virginia Water Pavilion we suggest that you do not turn left and in front of Virginia Water South car park we suggest you do not turn right.
We politely ask Members and Visitors to respect all barriers and closure signage.

To fully appreciate the captivating sights at the top of Queen Anne’s Ride, park opposite Ranger’s Gate and enter Windsor Great Park on foot, bicycle or horseback - to begin the climb towards the Jubilee Statue. This statue is the only sculpture of H.M. the Queen on horseback to have been commissioned, and was sculpted by Philip Jackson to mark the Golden Jubilee in 2002.
From the foot of Queen Anne’s Ride stretches the expansive lawns of Stag Meadow - a vast parkland dotted with wild flowers. Stag Meadow is home to Windsor & Eton football club, often providing the venue for an exciting match at weekends. There is also an area which is designated for flying model aircraft – and you can read more about this on our Model Aircraft Flying page.
The original single row of elm and lime trees of Queen Anne’s Ride was planted in 1708. Formerly known as the Queen’s Walk, the avenue was given a new title after Queen Anne’s fondness for horse drawn carriage rides along this path. Replanting has since taken place using the iconic Windsor Great Park oak trees, and the row of budding young oaks grows taller and stronger with each passing year.
