Originally a great royal deer hunting ground adjoined Windsor Castle and what is now left of it, some 6,000 acres (2,2428 hectare) is called Great Windsor Park. The Home Park lies within but is separated from Great Windsor Park by the busy A320 road.
The remainder of Great Windsor Park is open to the public and a walk up Snow Hill to the Copper Horse gives a grand view of Windsor Castle, the Long Walk and the surrounding countryside.
