 Windsor

 

 

Windsor Castle  -   is the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world, and one of the official residences of Her Majesty The Queen. The Castle's dramatic site encapsulates 900 years of British history and covers an area of 26 acres. Highlights include the magnificent State and Semi-State Apartments furnished with treasures from the Royal Collection and St George's Chapel where royal weddings take place, and ten monarchs are buried. https://www.rct.uk/visit/windsor-castle

Frogmore House  - has been a royal retreat since it was purchased by Queen Charlotte in 1790. Queen Charlotte and her daughters’ passions for art and botany are reflected throughout the interiors, particularly in the beautiful Mary Moser Room, decorated to resemble a shady garden alcove open to the skies. The Duchess of Kent lived at Frogmore House for almost 20 years, and her daughter, Queen Victoria, visited the house regularly during her long widowhood.

The tour of the house ends in the Britannia Room, furnished with items from the Royal Yacht Britannia arranged at Frogmore by His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh.

The visit continues with a guided walk around the 35-acre garden, first laid out for Queen Charlotte in the 1790s. The design and planting scheme of the garden today incorporates additions made under the direction of Queen Victoria and Queen Mary, as well as a number of trees and shrubs added to mark Her Majesty The Queen’s Silver Jubilee in 1977. The route encompasses views of the lake, Queen Victoria’s Tea House, the Gothic Ruin and the Royal Mausoleum, the final resting place of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.

Please note: The tour of the garden includes the external areas of the Royal Mausoleum, Tea House and Gothic Ruin, but not the inside.

 

 

 

· Hampton Court Palace   -  is a story of two palaces: a Tudor palace magnificently developed by Cardinal Wolsey and later Henry VIII, alongside a Baroque palace built by William III and Mary II. Meet Henry VIII and his court in the magnificent Tudor Palace. Feel the heat in the vast Tudor Kitchens and the eerie chill of the Haunted Gallery. In Henry’s  State Apartments, see his stunningly recreated Imperial Crown in the Royal Pew before sneaking below stairs to indulge in his vast Tudor Kitchens. Over 60 acres of  beautiful gardens featuring sparkling fountains run down to the River Thames.  www.hrp.org.uk/hampton-court-palace

 

· Royal Savill Garden  -  one of the finest woodland gardens in the country. In 1932 Queen Mary gave Sir Eric Savill permission to develop a 35 acre garden in Windsor Great Park.

With plants collected from around the world, there is a wonderful journey of discovery to be had.
