Snow Hill & Copper Horse - Windsor Great Park - Windsor visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Snow Hill & Copper Horse - Windsor Great Park' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Berkshire.
Snow Hill rises to about 75m within Windsor Great Park and offers great panoramic views back north over Windsor Castle and much of the land around Windsor. On the top of the hill is the Copper Horse erected by George VI in ironic memory of his father George III, whom he despised much to the contrary of the Latin inscription at the base of the statue.
Running 2.65 miles north from Snow Hill is the The Long Walk, which was laid out by Charles II and ends at George IV gate of Windsor Castle. The road on the walk was laid out during the reign of Queen Anne to provide a smooth surface for coaches.
