Swinley Forest

Swinley Forest is owned and managed by the Crown Estate, and stretches over 2,600 acres of gentle hills from Bracknell to Crowthorne.

Our visitors love the forest, and many people use The Look Out as a base to explore the surrounding area.

For visitor information on safety and policies (including ticks, trees and water), visit the Windsor Great Park website.


The car park is open daily from 7am until 7:30pm.

Parking is £3.60 for 4 hours or £7.20 for all day.
