Lodge in Windsor Home Park
The straight path that links Windsor Castle with Snow Hill in Windsor Great Park is known as The Long Walk. From the Castle gate to the foot of the statue of King George II (The Copper Horse) The long walk measures 2.64 miles in length.

The path as we know it came into being during the reign of King Charles II who had double rows of Elm trees planted the entire length of the route. There were 1,652 trees planted to create the basis of the landscape we know today. Charles wanted to remodel Windsor in a modern popular style and the Long Walk was just one aspect of his improvement scheme.

Over the years Elms have been replaced by Oak, Horse Chestnut and London Plane trees. At the Park Street (Castle) end of the Long Walk Horse Chestnuts predominate LinkExternal link
