The Fox and Hounds

The Fox and Hounds is next to the Bishops Gate entrance to Windsor Great Park, about a mile from the college (20 mins walk). A further 20 minute walk into the Great Park can get you to Smiths lawn in one direction or the "Copper Horse" (Prince Albert Memorial) in the other. The "Copper Horse" is on snow hill which offers a magnificent view of Windsor and Windsor Castle. The ambitious might like to walk the 3 miles to Windsor Castle down the Long Walk. There is a good pub very near the other end, The Two Brewers. There is a bus from Windsor which passes the college if you don't fancy the walk back.
