Family Friendly Walks

This is a great flat walk between George IV Gateway at Winsdor Castle and the Copper Horse statue which sits 3 miles away. If you and your family are not upto the three mile walk you can do a section of the walk. If you pick the right day you could extend the walk into the centre of Windsor, just up from the Guildhall to see the Changing of the Guard. Part of the walk is in the deer park so keep an eye out and respect these beautiful animals. The walk is flat so you can take a buggy and dog walkers walk this route. 

This is a great family walk, which is dog friendly and also flat for buggies. This walk is beautiful whatever the time of year and you can really see the change in seasons due to the wonderful trees around the lake. You can walk part of the lake or the full lake and there is a totem pole and waterfall to be found as key landmarks to discover. The lake is large and packed full of wonderful wild life. There is ample space and a cafe with picnic tables. In the busier times there are kiosks around the lake for drinks and ice-creams. The lake gets busy for walking at weekends and during school holidays. There are car parks (parking charges apply) that surround Virgina Water but you can also buy a season car parking pass from Windsor Great Park online. 

Ascot Racecourse, The Heath

Ascot Heath is the land within Ascot Racecourse which the community can access on non-race days. The walk is a 1.8 mile flat circular walk which is dog and buggy friendly. On the Heath there is also a children's play area which is not massive but it is enclosed. The walk is quite impressive as you are overlooked by the Ascot Racecourse Grandstand. Parking is currently free and you can access the Heath from a number of different enterance points from around the racecourse. 

The forest is owned by the Crown Estate and is fantastic for exploring and an adventure. There are lots of different paths to explore throughout the woodland on foot. Dogs are welcome and you can get a buggy round the paths in the woods. There is also a fantastic large play area and a cafe. The woods has a 15 mile cycle network so there are often bikes around. The Look Out Discovey Centre and Go Ape are also both based at the site. Car Parking charges apply - RG12 7QW.

Boulters Lock and Ray Mill Island, Maidenhead

Boulters Lock and Ray Mill Island (SL6 8PE) both make a nice gentle walk with loads to see. Including Boulter's Lock itself where you can see boats coming in and out of the lock. You can then walk over a bridge from Boulter's Lock to Ray Mill Island and visit the small play area and wooden sculptures, aviary and guinea pig enclosure, watch the wildlife on the island and River Thames or watch the water cascade through Boulter's Weir. There is also a cafe on Ray Mill Island and Boulter's Bar and Resturant (which we have not tired yet). There is a play and display car park just up the road from Boulter's Lock. 

Runnymede, Surrey

Runnymead is a great place for a family walk. If you park at the Runnymead Pleasure Park, TW20 0AE (car parking charges apply) you can have a good walk along the River Thames, there are lots of birds and boats to see along the river. At the Runnymead Pleasure Park there is a cafe, children's park and paddling pool area (open in the summer months) and plenty of green space.
