About Virginia Water

Virginia Water is an enchanting weekend destination for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Renowned for its namesake lake and the sprawling Windsor Great Park in which it resides, this village offers an idyllic blend of natural beauty, historical intrigue, and leisure activities that cater to a wide range of interests and ages.

At the heart of Virginia Water's allure is the magnificent Virginia Water Lake. This artificial lake, one of the largest in England, is a focal point for visitors seeking tranquillity and natural beauty. The lake's perimeter pathway provides a scenic route for walkers and cyclists, allowing for leisurely exploration of its diverse landscapes, from woodland areas to open vistas. Along the way, one can discover the ornamental cascade, a waterfall that adds a picturesque touch to the lake's already stunning scenery.

The lake's surroundings are dotted with fascinating historical and cultural features, including a 100-foot totem pole, gifted to the Queen in the 1950s, and the ruins of Leptis Magna. These ruins, brought over from Libya in the early 19th century, offer a unique glimpse into Roman history amidst the English countryside. This blend of natural beauty and historical artifacts makes for an enriching walking experience, where each turn presents a new discovery.

Windsor Great Park, which encompasses Virginia Water Lake, extends the opportunity for exploration further. This royal park, with its vast expanse of formal gardens, ancient woodland, and open parkland, invites visitors to delve into England's royal and natural heritage. The Long Walk, a striking three-mile avenue that leads to Windsor Castle, provides a majestic setting for walks, offering views of the castle in the distance and the chance to spot deer among the ancient oaks.

For those interested in horticulture, the nearby Savill Garden is a must-visit. Recognized as one of Britain's greatest ornamental gardens, it showcases a diverse collection of gardens and woodland, with impressive displays of seasonal flowers and plants. The garden's design and plantings encourage visitors to meander and discover the beauty and tranquillity of its carefully curated landscapes.

Virginia Water also serves as a gateway to exploring the wider Surrey area and its attractions. The region is known for its picturesque villages, historic houses, and the rolling hills of the Surrey Downs, offering endless opportunities for day trips and outdoor activities. From wine tasting at local vineyards to visiting historic estates such as Hampton Court Palace, the area around Virginia Water provides a rich tapestry of experiences.

Dining in Virginia Water and its environs reflects the area's charm and diversity, with a variety of eateries ranging from cosy cafes and traditional pubs to fine dining restaurants. These establishments often feature locally sourced ingredients, offering a taste of Surrey's culinary delights.
