Free guided tours

Join us for a guided tour of Cumberland Lodge, on Saturday 14 or Sunday 15 September, followed by refreshments.

Cumberland Lodge has been the home of an educational foundation since 1947. A former royal residence set in the heart of Windsor Great Park, it has a fascinating history dating back to the 17th century.

The building itself has Republican roots, dating back to the period shortly after the English Civil War. After the Restoration of the monarchy, it became the official residence of many Rangers of the Great Park, including Sarah Churchill, first Duchess of Marlborough, and later on, Prince Christian and Princess Helena, the third daughter of Queen Victoria.

The Lodge takes its name from William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland and second son of King George II, who was Ranger from 1746.

Tours will take place on the hour, at the following times each day: 10am, 11am, 2pm and 3pm
