The Telegraph newspaper has listed Windsor Great Park, along with the Magna Carta Memorial at Runnymede as one of the top 25 winter walks in the UK.

The new list encompasses the entirety of the UK and includes some of the most dazzling locations for walks on crisp clear winter days. The newspaper described the Great Park’s Long Walk as a ‘great sweep of an avenue lined with horse chestnut and plane trees.’ It goes on to guide walkers up to Snow Hill and onto the Copper Horse statue.

The Telegraph includes an interesting detail about the Great Park’s Snow Hill, as being the location from which Henry VIII waited to hear of Anne Boleyn’s execution, which he himself had ordered.

The guide then advises walkers to exit the park at Bishopsgate before ‘looping round to the Runnymede memorials’ and returning to Windsor via Old Windsor and Datchet. The start and finish point of the walk is the Two Brewers pub, on Park Street in Windsor town centre, one of the very best historic pubs in the area.

Elsewhere on the list were beautiful walks taking in some of the UK’s most heritage-rich locations. These include Blenheim Palace’s Great Park, Chequers and Stonehenge. There are also walks around the regions that inspired literary greats like Charlotte Bronte and Beatrix Potter, as well as artists like Constable.
