The Savill Garden online: information and bookings

World-renowned 35 acres of ornamental gardens and woodland, including National Collections and rare international species, The Savill Garden provides a wealth of beauty and interest in all seasons.

Spring in The Savill Garden is heralded by hosts of daffodils, marvellous magnolias and the wonderful perfume of the varieties of rhododendrons and azaleas. Summer brings a contrast of colour, with the vibrancy of the grand Herbaceous Borders and the tranquil, pastel shades of the Golden Jubilee Garden. The glorious displays of autumn in the Garden are a joy to behold, before attention turns to the striking new additions to the Winter Garden.

Do not miss the exciting new Rose Garden, which will be unveiled in June 2010. The contemporary design will create an intense sensory experience with roses especially chosen for their scent, strong colours and repeat flowering.

The Queen Elizabeth Temperate House is another must-see element. The Temperate House provides an ideal environment to grow particularly tender plants, including examples of rhododendrons and mahonias from the National Collections. The Temperate House also showcases original and unusual seasonal plant displays which offer continuous floral interest and vitality throughout the year.

The Savill Building, with its award winning grid-shell roof fabricated from sustainable sources from forests within Windsor Great Park, offers excellent shopping, an art gallery, exhibitions and a restaurant, managed by Leith’s. Visitors to this impressive visitor centre can also pick up information showing the extensive network of footpaths, picnic areas and cycle paths across The Royal Landscape including Valley Gardens and Virginia Water. Landmarks include the 100ft Totem Pole, the 18th-century ornamental waterfall, the Roman Ruins and the Obelisk.

The Savill Garden is open daily (except Christmas and Boxing Day) between 10am to 6pm from March to October and 10am to 4.30pm during November to February. For more information, visit www.theroyallandscape.co.uk or call 01784 435544.
