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).
A progressive independent commercial business, created by Act of Parliament. Our portfolio includes the whole of Regent Street and much of St James’s in London’s West End, prime regional shopping centres, Windsor Great Park, rural land and coastline, and the UK’s seabed.
Windsor Great Park is home not only to our resident Red Deer herd, but also to a herd of Long Horn cattle which roam around the native oaks.
Perhaps one of the best known species that live in the Great Park is our herd of Red Deer, which are resident in the Deer Park adjacent to the Long Walk. The current herd was established from two stags and 40 hinds, originally from Balmoral Estate, which were introduced in 1979 by our Park Ranger HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.
If you visit the fields and woodland near Rangers Gate, close to Stag Meadow, you may also be able to catch a glimpse of our herd of Long Horn cattle - a living example of the natural woodland system. In addition, Windsor Great Park is also home to a number of other species, including muntjac and roe deer, badgers, bats and a healthy population of rabbits and hares. We have numerous freshwater fish in our lakes - including pike, tench, roach and carp – plus lots of butterflies, and protected dragonflies, during the summer months.
