“(About a 20 minute drive from 52 Lakeside) Windsor Great Park has witnessed countless events throughout history, dating back to pre-Saxon times - each of which has left its own distinctive mark on this impressive landscape. From William the Conqueror using the landscape as a hunting ground, to Queen Victoria entertaining on the shores of Virginia Water – its Royal connections remain strong today under the stewardship of HRH the Duke of Edinburgh, the current Ranger of Windsor Great Park.”

Point of Interest
“(About an 11 minute drive from 52 Lakeside) Ascot Racecourse is synonymous with quality, excellence and a truly memorable day out. It was Queen Anne in 1711 who first saw the potential for a racecourse at Ascot (in those days called East Cote). Whilst out riding near Windsor Castle she came upon an area of open heath that looked, in her words, “ideal for horses to gallop at full stretch”. The highlight of the year is Royal Ascot in June with five days of tradition, pageantry and style. Indeed Queen Anne's gift to racing, founding the Royal Racecourse, is marked by the tradition of opening Royal Ascot with the Queen Anne Stakes. Outside of Royal Ascot, spectacular racing takes place throughout the year, each raceday offering a unique theme and atmosphere including the King George VI Weekend in July, a Beer Festival in October and a Fireworks Spectacular in November, as well as four dedicated family racedays and much more. It’s a perfect family day out with free admission for all accompanied children under 18.”
