...Thing to Do in Berkshire; Visit the Royal County, a Jewel in England's Crown Where Kings and Queens Have Lived for Centuries: TEN GREAT


Windsor Great Park For centuries, the park of some 5,000 acres was the private hunting ground of Windsor Castle.

Take a wander along the famous Long Walk, the end of which is marked by the impressive Copper Horse statue which depicts King George III.

In the south-east of the park are the popular Savill Gardens, pictured, and Valley Gardens, designed and built by Eric Savill in the 1930s and 40s.

Finally, be sure to see Virginia Water Lake which dates back to the 1740s. Among the lakeside features are a 100foot high Canadian totem pole, marking the centenary of British Columbia, and a collection of ornamental Roman ruins, transported from the site of Leptis Magna in Libya.

Windsor Castle One of three official residences of the Castle has been home to the Sovereign for more than 900 years and not only is it the largest inhabited castle in the world, but it's also the oldest in continuous occupation. The imposing towers and battlements loom large from every approach, creating one of the world's most spectacular skylines.

Admission is pounds 13.50 for adults and pounds 7.50 for children from 9.45am to 5.15pm, April to October. In the winter, the castle closes one hour earlier. Reduced admission charges apply when the State Apartments are closed.
