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.

Everything you need to know about travelling to each area of Windsor Great Park, or to Swinley Forest.
Travelling to Windsor Great Park and Swinley Forest by car
Details of parking charges can be found on our Parking page. Dedicated disabled car parking bays are available in The Savill Garden, Valley Gardens and Virginia Water car parks, as well as in the car park which serves Swinley Forest.
To access the Long Walk and Deer Park, you can park at one of the car parks dotted along the A332 near Windsor, however visitors often park in Windsor town centre and walk along the High Street to enter Windsor Great Park through Cambridge Gate, which is located next to Windsor Castle. View our interactive map to see the layout of the Great Park and its pedestrian entrances.
If you park at The Savill Garden car park, you can then take a short walk to the right of The Savill Building, along Rhododendron Ride, to Cow Pond. This is a gentle walk and should take around five minutes.
From The Savill Garden car park, Obelisk Lawn is almost immediately to the left of The Savill Building. Then just head towards the Cumberland Obelisk, which you will be able to see from the car park.
You can choose to park at The Savill Garden car park and walk towards the Cumberland Obelisk, then cross Obelisk Bridge on your right, to arrive at Smith’s Lawn. Alternatively, park at The Valley Gardens car park to enter Smith’s Lawn from the opposite side of the polo fields.
Queen Anne's Ride and Stag Meadow
To access Queen Anne’s Ride and Stag Meadow on foot, you can park at any of the car parks dotted along the A332. Horsebox parking is available at the car park opposite Ranger’s Gate.
