The area surrounding Audley Cooper’s Hill is spoilt for places to visit. Windsor Castle, Windsor Great Park and Savill Gardens, Virginia Water, Ascot Racecourse, RHS Wisley, Cliveden House and many more, all within a short distance from this luxury retirement community.
Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world, notable for its long association with the English and later British Royal family, and for its architecture. In 2018 Windsor Castle hosted two Royal weddings, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and Princess Eugenie of York to Jack Brooksbank, attracting worldwide attention.
The castle is open for visitors every day except Garter Day, Easter and Christmas.
With historic woodland and award-winning gardens, Windsor Great Park attracts visitors all year round.
The Long Walk, leading from Windsor Castle up to the famous Copper Horse statue is a three mile tree-lined avenue with stunning views down to the castle and across the surrounding area, forms the most iconic image associated with Windsor Great Park.
Since its creation in the 1930s, The Savill Garden is a haven of beautifully designed gardens and woodland. Made up of 35 acres, visitors enjoy walking around sculptures and discovering new and rare plants from around the world, arranged in incredible seasonal compositions.
One the most well-known and leading racecourses in the UK, Ascot Racecourse hosts 13 of the 36 annual Group 1 horse races.
Rebuilt in the 1960s and again in 2006, the Ascot grandstand has undergone several transformations through the years.
Royal Ascot is probably the most world-famous event in the horseracing calendar, attracting some of the most high calibre race horses all competing for more than £8 million in prize money across the five day event.
Wisley is the historic home of the RHS and boasts one of the largest plant collections in the world. Every season has a different wonder to show - bulbs and blossom in spring, beautiful borders and roses in summer, stunning autumn colours and then frosty walks in winter.
The Glasshouse is worth a visit on its own, not to mention the cosy cafes where you can enjoy a hot lunch or cup of tea. Just around the corner from Wisley is a 'pick your own' farm where you can enjoy the local produce at a great price.
Built in 1666 by the 2nd Duke of Buckingham as a gift to his mistress, Cliveden House is set amongst 376 acres of National Trust grounds and has remained a pinnacle of intrigue and glamour to the elite. This impressive Grade 1 listed stately home is now a luxury award-winning five star hotel and is only a 30-minute drive from our retirement development and 6 miles from Dorney Lake.
