Visit Virginia Water and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Virginia Water, Surrey, embraces a considerable area of the part of Windsor Great Park which lies in Surrey, in the south eastern corner of which is Virginia Water Lake, covering about 160 acres. Overflow waters from the lake form a cascade which is visible from the Great South-West main road. The park was laid out in 1746 by the Duke of Cumberland, victor of the battle of Culloden. On the south side is a colonnade of pillars, a number of them broken, brought from Leptis Magna and set up here on the orders of George IV. On the opposite side of the A30 is a tower, a rebuilt version of an observatory which was destroyed by fire in the late 18th century.
The grounds round the lake have many excellent picnic spots, and the lake offers fine boating. The surrounding park and country are good for rambling.
