The walk follows a mixture of tarmac paths, grass avenues and sand tracks some of which will be muddy after a wet weather. There are several gradual ascents and descents throughout the walk, but these are well worthwhile with the views the hilltops provide. There are no stiles and just a couple of deer gates (tall kissing gates). Dogs are welcome in the Great Park, although they need to be on leads in some areas and under close control at all times. Likely supposed to share the paths with many cyclists and horse riders and you will also pass through part of the deer park. The trail can take approximate time 2.5 hours but it's totally worth the trip! Time to disconnect and enjoy nature.Show more

The lake at Virginia Water was created in the 18th century and construction work first began in 1752. William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland had ambitious plans for the area, and his work on the project continued when his brother Henry Frederick succeeded him as Ranger. The woodland shores of this magnificent lake are immensely popular amongst people who love to take part in the wide range of activities that are possible here - from walking or running the perimeter, to just relaxing and enjoying the view. This area is testament to a rich history that spans centuries - from ancient monuments, to cascading waterfalls and stunning vistas. It is popular all year round, with its sparkling waters and abundance of wildlife. Show more
