H&G Garden Series – The Royal Gardens at Highgrove, April 21

Our exclusive series of events is back for 2020, with a focus on stunning outdoor spaces

We’re delighted to be partnering with Cole & Son to bring you this year’s Garden Series, a programme of talks, visits and behind-the-scenes access to some of the UK’s most beautiful outdoor spaces. Our calendar begins at Highgrove, where you’ll be led by an expert guide in a small group around the incredible Royal Gardens, the private gardens of Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall.

40 years in the making, Highgrove is one of the most creatively inspired gardens of our time and in Spring they are bursting with colour and looking truly spectacular.

Designed as a series of interlinking gardens that weave around the house, each one with its own distinct character and purpose that reflect The Prince’s interests and beliefs,

We are delighted to offer H&G readers the exclusive opportunity of an unforgettable tour of the Royal Gardens and the chance to hear renowned interior designer Susie Atkinson in conversation with our acting Editorial Director Pip McCormac.

During the day, you’ll enjoy a ninety minute tour of the gardens with one of the Prince of Wales’s expert guides. It’s a unique chance to explore the incredible gardens, from the magical cobble-patterned thyme walk, with its flanks of whimsically shaped golden yew topiaries, the sensational Walled Garden, with its tunnels of apple trees, rose arbours and the magnificent Italian fountain to the serene, otherworldly setting of the Stumpery.

From family life on the Estate to tales of how HRH has crafted each of these amazing gardens from scratch, your tour will offer a rare glimpse into the life of the Prince of Wales and highlights of the Gardens in Spring, magnificent pot displays, elegant tulips, azaleas and early rhododendrons and, of course, the stunning, camassias, narcissi and daffodils in the Arboretum and Meadow.

You’ll also get to meet our acting Editorial Director Pip McCormac, who will be in conversation with interior designer Susie Atkinson discussing all things colour. The floor will then be open for questions.

To top off this exclusive experience, you’ll enjoy a glass of champagne and a delicious two-course seasonal lunch, prepared by our Highgrove chefs using local and seasonal ingredients.
