Trip Planner: Europe / UK / England / Berkshire / Windsor and Maidenhead / Windsor / Windsor Great Park
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.

When I went here a few days ago, it felt like I was in Canada as opposed to in Surrey. The lake is absolutely stunning and the park surrounding it provides a fun and challenging walk. There are plenty... more »
Beautiful scenery and lovely walks, we walked around Virginia waters and had a fantastic time we loved the stunning rhododendrons. We even recommended visiting to friends. One bad point would be the £2:50 an hour parking is rather steep but overall we really enjoyed our visit and a nice waterfall
Well tended very large park with Virginia Water at the end. Good parking at VWater, plus cafe. Roughly 5 mile walk around the lake on good paths.
Fantastic, family-friendly park in Surrey. The paved roads makes getting around with a pram easy and the rolling hills aren't too hard on little or old legs. Varied landscape with both manicured garden settings and wild woods. A lovely day out, but get here early before the paid car park (£2/hr) gets full.
Lovely park for a relaxing walk, picnic or just to admire some really beautiful flowers. I'm visiting this place regularly for more than a year yet it has never disappointed me.
One of the most beautiful places in England I've been. It's especially nice now at springtime. Perfect for hiking, running, cycling and a lot more things to do.
