Langley Country Park dubbed Buckinghamshire’s ‘hidden gem’

Langley Country Park, which is a short drive from Slough town centre, has received a number of good reviews despite not being among the county’s most popular or well-known.

On Tripadvisor, the outdoor space has received an average rating of 4.5 stars and has been recognised as a great spot for walking and looking for flowers.

It was also praised for offering good views of Windsor Castle on a sunny day, as well as having an arboretum and a lake.

One person said: “Lovely park with great open spaces. Playground area for kids. Cafe for hot drinks and substantial snacks. Very local for Slough and Langley residents/ Perfect for a quick walk or a free outing for the kids.”

Another visitor wrote: “Langley Park has much to recommend it for a day in the countryside. The highlight in May should be Temple gardens with Azaleas and Rhododendrons.

“Other parts of our visit were more rewarding – there are fine views to Windsor Castle on a clear day. It is a pleasant time to walk through the rides and woodland – down Verney’s walk to the arboretum. ”

The volunteers who keep the park looking tidy were also praised, with one person saying: “Saw some great work being carried out by volunteers at the park recently.

“The volunteers and a Ranger were carrying out work around the park, this included cutting back overgrown shrubs, pruning some of the trees and generally keeping the park looking nice for visitors and wildlife. Without the volunteers the Rangers would struggle to maintain and keep the park to the high standards we expect.”
