Frogmore House and The Savill Garden

23/08/2018

Our morning visit is to Frogmore House which has been a favourite royal retreat for more than 300 years. It is no longer an occupied royal residence, but is frequently used by the Royal Family for private entertaining. We travel on to the Savill Garden where you can enjoy a Gardener’s Lunch in the company of one of the Royal Gardens team giving you an opportunity to ask an expert anything about the Savill Garden, or your own garden whilst enjoying a buffet lunch in a private marquee on the lawns. You can then enjoy the rest of the afternoon in the garden.
