Varied landscape of woods and gardens.
Witness a wide variety of wildlife including red and fallow deer, woodpeckers and even parakeets!
Walk through The Isabella plantation which is a beautiful forty two acre woodland garden containing rare plants from all over the world.
Visit Pembroke Lodge the former home of the British Prime Minister Lord John Russell and now a restaurant with glorious views across the Thames Valley.
Visit Pen Ponds which has Canada geese, swans and other bird life. (It also has a nice cafeteria for anybody wanting to buy a hot drink or a quick snack).
Visit White Lodge which was the former hunting lodge of George II and now home to the Royal Ballet School.
At the end end of the walk we shall be going to a local pub for some drinks.
Please bring a packed lunch and a bottle of water with you on the walk
We’ll be walking along clearly defined paths but after all the rain we’ve had recently I’d recommend wearing proper walking boots or shoes if you have them as it’s likely to be muddy in places.
