#1 - Virginia Water Circular Walk
Windsor Great Park

Length: 4.3 mi • Est. 1 h 43 m
Parking fee £9 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 a ‘Roman temple’ built from columns and lintels brought from the ancient city of Leptis Magna (Libya) in the early 19th Century, to monuments, cascading waterfalls, and stunning vistas. It is popular all year round, with its sparkling waters and abundance of wildlife. Show more

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

Park information: https://www.windsorgreatpark.co.uk/en. Free parking at the Windsor great park open air car park. This is a circular walk through the beautiful Windsor Great Park. There are loads of off lead opportunities for the dog and a pub (Fox & Hounds) stop half way round! On a historical note, the last Duke of Windsor was Edward VIII. This royal title has been deemed sullied and unusable ever since his abdication from the throne in 1936, when he was forced to choose between his love of Wallis Simpson and the throne. Show more
