Sandringham, Norfolk, PE35 6EH
Wednesday 22 May, 10.30am – 4.00pm
Garden tour, lunch with wine and access to the house and museum
Sandringham House, HM The Queen’s Norfolk retreat, is surrounded by 60-acres of glorious informal gardens. Head Gardener Martin Woods will be leading the tour, revealing why they have been called “the best of the royal gardens”.
The formal planting of the Edwardian age has given way to great sweeping glades, bordered by splendid specimen trees and shrubs, to create an informal garden full of colour and interest throughout the year: woodland walks, lakes and streams, sheets of spring-flowering bulbs, avenues of rhododendrons and azaleas, beds of lavender
and roses, dazzling autumn colour – there is always something to see. Other highlights include the formal North Garden, Queen Alexandra’s summerhouse perched above the lake beside its own cascading stream, 16 species of oak and
many commemorative trees. After exploring these vast gardens, lunch will be served in the main restaurant, following which guests can visit the house and museum at their leisure.
