Walks around Windsor

There are some excellent walks around Windsor. Here are some walks of different lengths that we think you will enjoy.

Windsor to Datchet along the river.
Distance: 2.5 miles
This is an easy stroll past the castle and royal park to Datchet (where you can pick up a train back to Windsor and Eton Riverside Station). The views of the castle from the home park are exceptionally good and the whole walk is all on flat ground so suitable for all fitness levels.

The Long Walk

This varied route includes the wide tree-lined ‘Long Walk’ into Windsor Great Park. The first trees along this route were planted on the orders of King Charles II.

Dorney Circular Walk
Distance 8.5 miles
A beautiful circular walk from Windsor with lots of riverside views and either a great cafe or pub for refreshment halfway round the walk.

Windsor Great Park Walk
Distance 8.8 miles
From either the Ranger’s Gate or Cranbourne Gate (both on the A332 between Windsor and Ascot) car parks, take a circular walk through the wonderful vistas of the Great Park. There are hills and valleys to explore. Nothing too difficult though.
