View of Windsor Castle from Windsor Great Park

Windsor Great Park covers 4,800 acres, parts of which are open to the public. Its present area was determined in the 1360s and was popular with Saxon kings as a hunting forest. The park is shrouded in mystery and legend and for over 1,000 years the story of Herne the Hunter has been told. His ghost still appears wearing the antlers of a stag, riding a phantom black stallion at the head of a pack of black hounds. He appears to warn of times of trouble and gallops through Windsor Great Park only to disappear into thin air.

The park today is the perfect place for picnics, walking, cycling and horse riding. A footpath map of the park is available from the Royal Windsor Information Centre or download a guide to Easy Going Routes for Windsor Great Park.

Accessible from Windsor town centre on foot via the Long Walk, or car parks are located along the A332 that goes through the Park. Alternatively you can drive to Virginia Water and park at Virginia Water South or Virginia Water car parks for a walk around the lake, where you will pass a totem pole and miniature waterfall.

Free entry to all areas of Windsor Great Park, except for the Savill Garden. Free car parking areas on the A332. Chargeable parking at gates around the Great Park. Open year round from 7am to dusk.

Visitor enquiries to the Savill Garden address above, admin enquiries to The Crown Estate Office, The Great Park, Windsor, SL4 2HT, tel 01753 860222.

  • Take to the outdoors this Easter on the new Spring Trail at Windsor Great Park

    Available from 30 March – 15 April

    This Easter there is no better reason to take to the outdoors than the brand-new Spring Trail at Windsor Great Park. Running from the 30 March through to the 15 April, families looking for fun, adventure and fresh air can purchase their trail sheets from the Savill Building to learn more about the history and natural surroundings of the Great Park.

    Starting at the Savill Building, which will be reopened following the latest refurbishments just in time for the Easter break, the Trail will encourage families to explore some of the historic sights of The Great Park. Returning to the Savill Building, participating children can pick up a chocolate treat. The trail is suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs, whilst scooters and dogs are also welcome - it really is an adventure for the whole family.

    Once back at the Savill Building, families can finish their day out with a visit to the Savill Garden Kitchen. With a new and exciting Spring Menu being launched, hungry Park explorers can rest their feet and enjoy a tasty bite to eat and refreshing drink before heading home.
