The reward that greets you at the end of The Long Walk (rumoured to be three miles but in truth it falls slightly short of this figure) is this vast statue of George III atop his steed.  His son George IV commissioned sculptor Sir Richard Westmacott to build it. The horse was finally was erected in 1831, not until after George IVs death. The unfounded rumour surrounding the statue is that Westmacott hanged himself having forgotten to include the stirrups!

It is certainly worth the walk as the views from the elevated position back down the Long Walk to Windsor Castle are simply breathtaking. On the way back once you’ve worked up a thirst why not stop off at the Windsor Castle Pub for a pint. If you’re feeling peckish then why not indulge yourself, this pub is one of our favourite burger spots! Its located on the left through the trees as you approach the castle.
