Step outside this spring...

Explore the great outdoors and enjoy the natural mood-lifting antidote of a walk in the Parkland. With 2000 acres to explore, there’s a walk to suit everyone and every occasion from a stroll around the Formal Gardens to venturing into the wider Estate.

With the days getting longer, there are more opportunities to enjoy beautiful sunsets and sunrises, and these warmer spring days are a perfect excuse to get out for a walk to blow away the cobwebs. Why not head to the Oxfordshire Pantry or Stables Café afterwards to relax with a luxurious hot chocolate and a slice of cake?

View our PDF map for more detailed information on the walk routes and locations around the Palace, Park and Gardens.
