Virginia Water is a geographically large English village which has become the first traditionally defined settlement (town or village) outside London where house prices average more than £1 million; it is also a 'post town' which does not denote town status. Architecturally intricate mansions are particularly prevalent in the Wentworth Estate and its outskirts. Virginia Water includes the Wentworth Estate and the Wentworth Club, where the first Ryder Cup was played. The village is in the Borough of Runnymede. The lake from which it takes its name stretches from its county of Surrey to part of Sunninghill and Ascot. Within the village area is the Savill Garden and part of Windsor Great Park.
