Windsor Great Park, Windsor

(4.7/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Spend some time at Windsor Great Park and you will appreciate why it has long been a favorite spot of the British royal family. Though you might not get an invite to visit Prince Andrew, Duke of York, at his official residence there, you will still have more than 5,000 acres of gardens, woodlands, and open grasslands at your disposal for strolling or nature watching. Bicycles, picnic baskets, and leashed dogs are welcome in many areas of the park. With history stretching back more than 700 years, the park has variously served as a stocked deer park for hunts and royal retreats. Be sure to keep an eye open for the ancient oak that pre-dates most countries by centuries. The park is governed by the Crown Estate, which means it is specially cared for by the British royal family, who welcomes yours here. Using our international travel planner, Windsor attractions like Windsor Great Park can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Th8s is a dog friendly park and is a friendly place. I do feel that people who come without dogs get very irritated at you if you have a dog. Some people have been aggressive if my dog is off the lead...  more »

  • Fantastic place to come and walk or cycle. Polo games are also played frequently. You may even get lucky and see the Queen drive through.
  • Great place for a day out, Virginia Water is 40mins train ride from London. Highly recommend it in autumn. Best highlights: the Cascade, Heather Garden, High Flyers hill.
  • This reminds me of the Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, just with more of a natural feel without the facilities. There are plenty of trails here and a real diverse selection of greenery. If you're looking to escape the city then this is definitely a place you can spend the good part of a day exploring.
  • Superb. Its very good for the soul and its so large it never gets over crowded. I walk every weekend for exercise with the dog in tow. We park up for free, and first head over to the copper horse via the deer park, then cut through to the polo fields (the dog can run wild here, although we've got to look out for the mowers), then down to banks of Virginia Water where we head back via Valley Gardens on our return route. Its around a 5 mile round trip. Its a beautiful and well kept park and I know I'm very lucky to be living locally in Windsor. Its such an asset on my door step, and its free. I would highly recommend to walkers, families, couples and cyclists alike. Everyone I meet on my walk is happy to be so out in the open air. Having travelled and visited many countries, this really is a modern wonder of the world IMHO. Superb!
  • An amazing park with deers and a lot of birds. So cleen and huuuge.
