About

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.

      We come here alot as the paths are very smooth allowing kids to easily use their scooters. It is safe as there are very few cars. Great for wildlife too as you may spot some deer. Read full review
