Windsor Great Park

Gardenvisit Editorial

The park has a 2-mile avenue of plane trees and horse chestnuts, leading to an equestrian statue of George III. The Long Walk in Windsor Great Park was designed in the reign of Charles II, as a double row of elms. It runs from Windsor Castle to the Copper Horse (approx 3 miles). A programme of replacing the elms with with oak began in 1859 and, where they did not flourish, this was extended to include Horse Chestnuts and London Plans. Many of the present trees in the Lond Walk were planted in the 1920s.

Windsor Great Park also contains the Savill Garden, the Valley Garden and Virginia Water. Virginia Water is a serpentine lake formed in 1750.
