This is a long walk but lovely.

We should see the Queen on her way to the ASCOT races. We will have a picnic whilst we wait for her and her carriage. It is not guaranteed but I have got it right so far. Fingers crossed and let's hope I get it right again this year.

This is a leisure walk encompassing The Savill Garden, Virginia Water, The Valley Gardens and the Long Walk and Deer Park – the Great Park offers a rich tapestry of experiences to discover, with a Royal history spanning over 1,000 years. You will encounter historical monuments, ancient forests and stunning horticultural displays, as well as rare wildlife, plants and fungi - so whatever your interest, there will be something to excite and amaze you.

It is a flat (no hills) circular walk which starts and finishes at Protected content
