In line with Government advice, the Great Park currently remains open for you to take essential exercise, if you live locally. (You shouldn’t travel outside of your village, town or area of the city you live in).
To help keep everybody safe, when in the Park you must follow Government national lockdown rules.
Your safety, the safety of our staff and other Park visitors is our utmost priority. We will not hesitate to impose tighter restrictions if safety is compromised.
Before you leave home
Please note - there may be occasions where our team will ask you to move on if an area is becoming too crowded. Please respect their request.
If you are taking your daily exercise and are parking at The Savill Garden, please be aware of roadworks on Wick Road scheduled for the 25 January. Diversion signs will be in place.
Please can horse riders use the road from Timber Lodge crossroads to the cross-over point to the horse track leading to Ox Pond. This is due to the ground conditions of the adjacent horse track..

This Easter there is no better reason for families to come together and use all their senses to become Nature Detectives and learn more about some of the UK’s native trees, animals and birds. We have teamed up with the Berks, Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trust that will take them on a journey through Windsor Great Park.
Starting at The Savill Building from 04 – 13 April*, families will follow a trail to learn more about some of the UK’s native trees, animals and birds. Participating children will be rewarded with their own “Organic Chocolate + Surprise Toy” (Dairy, Nut, Gluten & Plastic Free) when they return to The Savill Building.
The trail, great for children of all ages, is also suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs, and at approximately 2km total (1.2miles) should take about 1 hr. Dogs on leads are also welcome!
On your return stop off at Obelisk Pond to enjoy the rides* of Horton’s Vintage Fair. There is something for all age groups … its sure to put you in a spin!
Once back at The Savill Building, you can finish off your trail at The Savill Garden Kitchen. With a new and exciting Spring Menu, hungry Nature Detectives can rest their feet and enjoy a tasty bite to eat and refreshing drink before heading home.

Car park charges apply to non-members. Car parking is free with a paid visit to The Savill Garden. When visiting The Savill Building, dogs are welcome on The Savill Garden Terrace.
