Frogmore House, set in the private Home Park, is renowned for its beautiful landscaped garden and 18th-century lake. Queen Victoria was inspired to write 'all is peace and quiet and you only hear the hum of the bees, the singing of the birds'. Indeed Queen Victoria loved Frogmore so much that she chose to build a mausoleum for herself and her husband, Prince Albert, in the grounds.
The interior of Frogmore House reflects the interests and talents of several generations of the royal family.
Princess Elizabeth, daughter of George III and Queen Charlotte was a gifted amateur artist and painted the decorative panels on view in the Cross Gallery.
In the Victoria Closet visitors can see works of art executed by three generations of the royal family - Victoria, Duchess of Kent, Queen Victoria, and a number of works by Queen Victoria's children, including Princess Victoria and Princess Louise.
The garden is one of the enduring attractions of Frogmore. Queen Charlotte had a great interest in botany and was given full rein in the garden at Frogmore, which she laid out with rare and unusual plants. She formed an extensive botanical library and flowers became a major theme in the house. She commissioned Mary Moser (1744-1819), a renowned flower painter, to decorate a room with garlands of flowers.
2013 opening dates are 14-16 May 2013 and 17-19 August 2013.
A typical visit lasts between 1½ and 2 hours.
We regret that the Mausoleum will be closed during 2013 due to a long term conservation project.
