Set amidst the extensive Home Park of Windsor Castle, Frogmore House is surrounded by fine and picturesque gardens.

The house dates from the 1680s and was purchased for Queen Charlotte in 1792.  Here the Queen was able to indulge her love of botany and laid out the garden with many rare and unusual plants.

At one time the house was the home of Queen Victoria's mother, the Duchess of Kent. After her death, her son-in-law, Prince Albert, commissioned the building of an elegant mausoleum to hold her remains.  Queen Victoria was particularly fond of Frogmore's peaceful ambience and it became her favourite retreat.

Victoria and Albert's love of Frogmore lead them to break with tradition and build themselves a much larger and grander mausoleum for themselves.

Favoured also by King George V and Queen Mary, they used Frogmore for entertaining during Ascot Week.

Today, with its handsome house and tranquil gardens, it is easy to imagine the love Frogmore inspired in its former residents.
