Picnic with The Queen, Windsor Great Park, 6 miles

Last year we had the most amazing day out led by Mike and I've had lot's of requests to do it again this year . You will need a picnic for this one .

A chance to see The Queen and Prince Philip, as they journey through the Park towards Royal Ascot.

The walk will start at the Fox and Hounds pub near Bishopsgate (postcode: TW20 0XU) and join the Long Walk in time to catch the horse drawn carriages on their route from Windsor Castle to the Copper Horse (around 12.30 pm).

We will continue to Dukes Lane, where we will join the assembled crowds for a picnic lunch near the change-over point.


N.B. Please bring your own picnic lunch and drinks, since there will be no refreshments or burger vans around. And don’t forget to bring your digital or video camera, to capture the moment.

HM The Queen, Prince Philip and other guests will arrive in royal cars and transfer to the famous Landaus (horse-drawn carriages) between 1.30 - 1.45 pm. The public are allowed to watch the Royal Party transfer to the carriages, before they continue their journey through the Park towards Royal Ascot.



We will return to the starting point (near the Fox and Hounds pub) later in the afternoon.

Cost: the usual £2 please.

    A right Royal meetup- with HM the Queen in attendance! We waived the £2 fee, but we should have asked for 2 million!

    I apologize for late update! I really wanted to be in this walk today, but although whole night been up, couldn't manage to finish a work and have to deal with client work today! You will enjoy it, as it's a great area. :)

    Sorry Gavin, will have to drop out - been asked to run a food hygiene course in Epsom that day - was looking forward to it, as going to Ascot on the Friday. Never mind - hopefully next year

    Hi Gavin, just a note. The email announcement shows the date as TUES 11JUN but the event page shows WED 19JUN. Thought I would mention it as people may question it. As Royal Ascot is the wk 18-22JUN, then obviously 19JUN is correct? Damn shame as I'm on hols that wk and was so looking forward to going, as I missed this event last year!!! Maybe next year?!?! Susan xx :)))
