We often come here for a walk, sometimes just us, sometimes with friends. The walk around the lake is a perfect objective, with a variety of beautiful sights and sounds.

Parking is a disgrace £10.00 for 3hrs ?? Get lost it's a nice place but you can spend an entire day somewhere even nicer for £5.00 black Park is 10x better with a huge play park big sit down cafe and reasonably priced...

So disappointed on my recent visit that Virginia Waters is one big dog toilet full of nasty entitled dog owners. As they are mainly locals they don't pay for the parking and therefore the upkeep of the beautiful place, yet they act like it's purely for them. Have been coming here for 50 years and this is the first time I didn't enjoy it. Such a shame, I did speak to one of the park rangers who was very helpful. It would be fairer to charge for entry rather than parking.

Thank you for your review, we are so pleased to read how much you cherish Virginia Water and the years that you have spent visiting. We are sorry to hear about the experience you witnessed while walking. We ask that dogs should be under close control in permitted dog walking areas and responsible ownership is listed in our policies and guidelines and that includes the bagging and binning of waste. We will feed this back and continue to monitor the usage of the Great Park. So pleased to hear that the member of the team you met was able to help and we hope that we can see you again soon for another visit.

The area is great for a walk but the Cafe by the entrance is not good. Absolutely over priced and it was the worst coffee I ever had, plus a bad service. I definitely will not go to this cafe ever again. Do not recommend it.

Thank you for your feedback. Wonderful to hear you enjoyed your walk around Virginia Water Lake. We are disappointed to read that the service was not at the level it should have been and we have forwarded this on to the Virginia Water Pavilion Café to review.

Parking fee is absurd. If everyone is too appreciative this beautiful spot how can the parking fees justify this. It’s an absolute disgrace that the council has allowed this to occur.

So very disappointing

This is a great place to spend the day or a few hours with friends or family. You can decide how far you want to walk around the lake or in the gardens, which are all immaculately kept.

However, the parking is extortionate. Try to find alternative parking nearby if you can to save yourself paying £12 for anything over 3 hours!

The lake itself is absolutely lovely and such a great place to get away from it and have a walk. Unfortunately the price of food at the food outlets both at the entrance and half way round the lake are unbelievably expensive. This is such a shame as it completely ruins what should be a great place to visit.
There is absolutely no reason for a breakfast roll should be nearly £9!!!!! Especially as this is just reheated and not freshly cooked. If the prices were more reasonable then they would sell a lot more food. I saw several people stop, look at the prices and then walk away just like us.
I think that this will stop us visiting again as there are other similar places much more reasonably priced to visit in the area.

If your looking for a nice peaceful place to visit this is the place to go! There is a beautiful lake and waterfall though small in size it’s still beautiful.
There are plenty of spaces to sit and enjoy some food with friends or just sit and enjoy the peaceful surroundings

We had a morning to kill after a day at legoland and wanted somewhere peaceful to spend it, away from city life. This place was stunning. Such a beautifully kept place, really popular for dog walkers and you can see why. What a great job the groundskeepers do. We only used the toilets so cant comment on the facilities although they were pristine. Car park was really spacious and costs 3 pounds per hours. Worth a wander for sure!
