Relax with a picnic and get to know the local wildlife

Gather all the family for a lively picnic or simply bring a deckchair and your favourite book.

Look out for swans, ducks, or the azure flash of a kingfisher.

As well as boat moorings and fishing swims along the river bank, two platforms are available near to the car park, making fishing accessible for all.

Amble along the riverbank, or explore the network of paths that lead you across glorious meadows and woodlands.

The historic town of Windsor is within easy reach along the Thames Path.

The Thames Path

Why not take a walk along the stretch of the Thames Path? You can see blackthorn bushes along the banks, and moorings are available along here for all you sailors out there.

Spotting kingfishers

We often see kingfishers here at Runnymede, just near to the car park. They nest here on the sandy banks of the Thames.

Need a rest?

This bench on the river bank is a popular spot for picnickers and walkers. It's a got nice bit of shade on sunny days, and is quite secluded. Perfect for a quiet rest.
