We manage the whole of the Windsor Estate, encompassing some 15,800 acres, where our role as long-term custodians is nowhere more apparent

Windsor is one of the country’s most unique and important environmental and ecological sites and welcomes 6 million visitors every year, placing it among the UK’s top visitor attractions.

It spans approximately 4500 acres and includes the award winning Savill and Valley Gardens, Virginia Water, the tree-lined Long Walk and stunning Savill visitor centre, as well as sweeping parkland, ancient woodland and forest trails.

Windsor is also a working estate and includes commercial forestry, a portfolio of residential and commercial property, as well as golf courses, Ascot race course, and let farms.

The woodlands at Swinley Forest for example sustainably produce over 10,000 tonnes of timber every year, for use in construction, fencing and heating homes.

The estate is also a popular location for commercial filming projects, ranging from small photo shoots to television dramas and major motion pictures.
