Frogmore House Open Garden on 1 September 2022

We're delighted to offer this rare opportunity to visit Frogmore House and Garden, the charming royal retreat within Windsor Castle's magnificent Home Park. All proceeds from tickets sold to the Open Garden for entry on 1 September 2022 are going to Guide Dogs.

Each year Frogmore House and Garden is opened to the public for three special charity days. We are delighted that in Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Year, Guide Dogs has been chosen as one of the charities to benefit from the annual charity garden open days. We would like to thank Her Majesty The Queen for this amazing opportunity to help raise funds, so we can continue to provide life-changing services for people living with sight loss, so they can live the lives they choose.

Built in the 17th Century, Frogmore House became a Royal residence in 1792 when it was purchased by Queen Charlotte, the wife of George III. Since then, successive monarchs have enjoyed the tranquil surroundings and delightful interiors. Although it is no longer an occupied Royal residence, Frogmore House is frequently used by the Royal Family for private entertaining.

The 35-acre gardens at Frogmore House are one of its most enduring attractions. First laid out for Queen Charlotte in the 1790s, they are based on a model 'picturesque' landscape. In 1867 Queen Victoria wrote, 'this dear lovely garden…all is peace and quiet and you only hear the hum of the bees, the singing of the birds.'

The design and planting scheme of the gardens 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. Today, visitors can enjoy gentle garden walks and views of Queen Victoria's Tea House and the 18th-century lake.

There is a limited number of tickets to the Gardens, available to pre-book via Eventbrite*.

Tickets cost £10 each (plus booking fee) and are for entry to the Garden only. Tickets will not be required for children under five years, but they must be accompanied by a paying adult.

Once inside the garden, there is a limited number of separate timed tickets available at an additional cost of £10 each (children under five years can enter for free) to visit inside Frogmore House. These can be purchased in cash from Royal Collection Trust.

Refreshments will be available to purchase (by cash only, credit or debit cards cannot be accepted) within the grounds, and visitors are welcome to bring their own picnics.

We do hope you can join us!
