This 35 acre woodland garden within Windsor Great Park was created in 1932 by Sir Eric Savill from an undeveloped area of the Great Park. It has wonderful collections of plants which give such spectacular spring displays; the formal rose garden and herbaceous border in summer; the fiery colours of Autumn and the misty vistas of winter. There is also a unique Temperate House which shelters frost-tender plants from the rigours of winter and is a fragrant delight in spring - 'a piece of woodland under glass'. It is widely recognised as one of the finest woodland gardens in the country.
In 1932 Sir Eric Savill began developing the garden from a boggy area of the Great Park. He was encouraged by King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother. Many areas of the garden have royal connections, such as the Queen Elizabeth Temperate House which was named for the Queen Mother and was opened by The Queen in 1995. In July 2002 The Queen opened the Golden Jubilee Garden - a soft gentle summer planting with hard landscaping and a water sculpture.
