The walk starts in the northern part of Windsor Great Park. Initially the route from the car park takes you to the 'Copper Horse' on Snow Hill and follows the impressive route along the Long Walk leading up to Windsor Castle. There is a good chance of seeing herds of deer in the park. There is an opportunity to detour to the town of Windsor. The return path, after leaving the outskirts of Windsor is via open parkland.

Cranbourne car park is only open at weekends. If going midweek it would be better to start at waymark 14. Also the route from waymark 14 back to 1 is not very nice in wet grass, much better to just stick to the estate roads.

This is a great walk if you want to see the beauty of the Great Park. If you are going on a busy weekend sunny day then you need to get to the car park fairly early to secure a space ! Great instructions, easy to follow, many thanks !

Following Emma's comment, the start point instructions have been updated to make it absolutely clear where the car park is, but I would also endorse Adrian's comment that use of the map is essential.

We strongly recommend that walkers always download and print out the Walkingworld map that goes with each walk. This always shows exactly where the start point is (and all the other waypoints as well). Adrian (Admin)

This walk says it starts from Cranbourne car park on the A332. We drove up and down the A332 many times. There are a few car parks but we had no idea which it was supposed to be. There are no signs on that road that indicate you are in Cranbourne. The start point you give needs to be clearer. This was a waste of money for us as we could not do the walk.
