Windsor Great Park, Windsor

4.7
#1 of 6 in Parks in Windsor
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.

  • A massive and beautiful park. I cannot recommend doing the Great Walk enough for its very picaresque view. The statue of King George the III down to Windsor Castle, the walk is very calming and there is nearly an absurd amount of deer to see on the way. The rest of the park is well worth walking and biking around as well.
  • Beautiful old oaks trees prone to shedding their branches - so don't park under one!. Great for afternoon walks with the dogs.
  • Had a great day out. Very well kept park. Lots of space. My only negative is the stella price of the parks.
  • First time here at Windsor Great Park. Lovely location, great to explore. One word "beautiful" Very busy and this is October. Still great place to walk around 🖒
  • Lovely walk around Virginia waters, seeing the totem pole and water feature. Would have liked to explore more but time ran away!
