Oodles of space with a wonderful view of Windsor castle looking one way and lovely woodlands, the other. The almost pastoral scene was so unexpected and I can imagine, on a nice clear day, would be the ideal venue for a picnic.

We came here after a day out at the Windsor castle. As the name suggests, the Long Walk is REALLY long. With your back against the castle and looking down (or is it up?) the long walk, you can faintly make out the status of King George III at the other end of the walk. We've only managed a very...

It's a great place to have picnics or stroll around, cycling and horse riding. A map is available free from the Information Centre. It's open all year round.

As a kid I spent many days exploring the park. It seemed vast, with many different areas and lots to do. As an adult it's actually still pretty much the same, just perhaps feels a little smaller. Nowadays I mostly park at the Virginia Water entrance and walk or run around the lake. Car parking is a bit of a... More

After a lovely wedding in Wokingham we went to the Great Park for canapés and champagne and it really is beautiful and even more so at dusk. Throughly recommend.

This park is great with the river boat too the large area of grass. We have been here regularly and always take a picnic. Windsor is a beautiful place to walk around where you can feed the swans and there are a lot! to just taking in the sites of the city.

It's a great place for a picnic, or for the energetic, a long walk. It's pretty much the Queens back garden!

The Windsor Great Park is stunning from the gates of the Castle all the way to Virginia waters. I love it all. For walking, riding, running, picnics and just great days out. We should all be so thankful to the royal family through the centuries for protecting these amazing green areas throughout London and the South East. It's such a... More

We are lucky that we have this on our doorstep as it is a fantastic outdoor space for families, especially in the summer with a picnic at the long walk.
