Day Trip to Virginia Water

FB_IMG_1464099149146Two weekends ago, I took a day trip to Virginia Water with a group of new friends from church. Since I’ve been in England,  I’ve been committed to exploring as much of it as possible so this trip fell right into my wheelhouse. The weather, a very unpredictable thing prone to random bouts of rain here in England, thankfully cooperated. It was warm yet cool enough for us to have a fun picnic and then hike around the Windsor Great Park luxuriating in all of mother nature’s beauty for over 4 hours. My unreliable phone gave out shortly after we got there so the beautiful pictures are courtesy of my friends.

So a little background, Virginia Water is a commuter town in Surrey which takes its name from the nearby Virginia Water Lake. The lake itself lies within Windsor Great Park, a royal park of a stupendous 5000 acres which means that our 4 hour hike still left a lot of the park unexplored. Fun fact, the shores of Virginia Water were used to film the lakeside scenes in the Harry Potter series!

Overall, this was a great adventure and I definitely recommend the location for a good getaway from the hustle and bustle of London’s concrete jungle.
