Windsor Great Park, Berkshire
The Windsor Great Park is a large area owned by The Crown estate around Windsor Castle, which can be accessed from many different points. The most famous for runners is probably The Long Walk, a straight road up to the Copper Horse statue. Starting at the Savill Garden visitor centre, this is an enjoyable loop on trails, smooth paths and quiet roads. Although there are occasional cars, they aren’t very frequent. The park welcomes walkers, cyclists, runners, horse riders and, of course, buggy runners. It’s a wonderful place to run because of the different sections that make it varied and interesting: some in woodland, some along water and some along polo fields. Access to the park is free, although entrance to the gardens is chargeable and there are also parking charges. You may see some wild deer or even royalty driving past!
