Windsor Great Park
Explore the wonders of Windsor Great Park on foot and lose yourself in the magic of its gardens, lakes and ancient woodland. Regular visitors will have their favourite routes, but here are three of ours, each starting from The Savill Garden.
The Savill Garden to
the Long Walk
About the walk
As you reach the Copper Horse statue, you will be greeted with wonderful views across the tree canopies and Windsor rooftops – with Eton College, Windsor Castle and the arch at Wembley stadium all visible. You can then return immediately, detour down the Long Walk or explore the ancient hills and forest areas of the Deer Park.
The Savill Garden to The Valley Gardens
About the walk
From The Savill Garden (TW20 0UJ) take a short walk to the northern shores of Virginia Water and the picturesque Valley Gardens. The gardens feature 250 acres of landscaped blooms, twisting woodland trails and unique views of the great lake. Explore the rising roots of the beech trees or wander through the flowering forest, wild grass meadows and exotic shrubs. In early summer, the Azalea Walk is filled with varieties of coloured azaleas.
During autumn, the rust-coloured canopies are enriched with intense reds – as oaks, sweet chestnuts and maples display their autumn hues, and crisp leaves crackle underfoot.
