With the clocks turning forward to pave the way for the warmer months, you might be inspired to book a day out to one of the most innovative gardens in the country. If you’re a gardening enthusiast or searching for a unique day out, look no further than our day trip to Highgrove Gardens this summer - now on sale.
Exclusively enjoyed by HRH The Prince of Wales’ and the Duchess of Cornwall, with the exception of limited tours taking place on selected dates throughout the year, take a look at what you can expect to see at these very personal Royal gardens:
Discover the creativity, imagination and horticultural ideas of the Prince of Wales - since 1980 he has worked to capture his environmental philosophy throughout the gardens.
Garden highlights encapsulate the unique ambience of Highgrove and showcase its rich variety of landscaping and flora and fauna, including:
The Wildflower Meadow, one of the most picturesque aspects of Highgrove. It complements the Georgian building with its rambling natural beauty.
Cottage Garden, a glorious scheme inspired by the colours of Tibet meets a more traditional English style in this idyllic garden, planted with a mixture of trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants.
Sundial Garden, an elegant garden which encapsulates the classic country estate aesthetic.
There will also be time to visit the Estate Shop. Maybe take home a souvenir or browse the carefully chosen products influenced by the interests of HRH The Prince of Wales.
The garden tour lasts approximately two hours and is a walk of about 2 miles. All garden tours are led by one of His Royal Highness’s garden guides. Visitors with walking difficulties should be aware that some paths are unmade. We suggest you wear stout shoes and suitable clothing as the tours continue during wet weather. Includes admission with all proceeds paid to the Prince’s Charities Foundation.
