About

The Savill Garden is one of Britain’s greatest ornamental gardens. It never fails to charm visitors who come to explore its 35 acres of contemporary and classically designed gardens and exotic woodland.

Developed under the patronage of Kings and Queens, The Savill Garden was created in the 1930s by Sir Eric Savill.

The Savill Garden is a place of constant discovery, and of interlocking gardens, containing distinctive areas such as Spring Wood, The Summer Wood, The Hidden Gardens, The Summer Gardens, The Glades, Autumn Wood, The Azalea Walks and The New Zealand Garden.

The Savill Garden mixes native and exotic species and has bred many important garden hybrids. Each ‘garden within a garden’ has its own attractions, and the gardens are ever-changing with every season bringing new colour and interest to delight the visitor.

The Rose Garden takes a fresh and contemporary approach to displaying roses. The design creates an intense sensory experience with roses especially chosen for their scent, strong colours and repeat flowering. Visitors enjoy the perfume at its best, together with stunning views, from a walk way which appears to ‘float’ above the Rose Garden.

The Savill Building

Striking and beautiful, The Savill Building is the gateway to The Savill Garden.  It’s an award-winning building with an elegant wooden roof, reminiscent of a leaf. Inside, visitors will find a warm welcome and excellent visitor facilities including an information point, restaurant, café, stylish gift shop, plant centre and toilets.

Eating and Drinking at The Savill Building

At one end of The Savill Building you’ll find The Savill Garden Kitchen, a restaurant run by esteemed caterers Benugo’s, famous for providing great, simple food with friendly, efficient service.  At the other end of the building, discover The Gallery Café where you can enjoy loose leaf teas or freshly ground coffee, plus a selection of homemade pastries, cakes and biscuits in a quieter location.

Shopping at the Savill Building

The Savill Garden Gift Shop is also located in The Savill Building.  You’ll find a wide range of beautiful gifts evocative of an idyllic country lifestyle alongside a range of plants and garden accessories from the Royal Gardens. The Savill Garden Gift Shop supports British manufacturers and you’ll discover a great range of locally produced items too, from shortbread to preserves.

Group visits to The Savill Garden

The Savill Garden is perfect for a group visit and Windsor Great Park has launched its new group visitors guide for The Savill Garden, detailing a wide selection of tours and experiences for group visits in 2019.

The guide includes details on the ‘Royal Heritage Tour and The Savill Garden’, which provides the opportunity to be immersed in 1000 years of Royal History with a personally guided coach tour of Windsor Great Park. Now in its second year and exclusively for groups, visitors can enjoy the unique national and natural heritage of Windsor Great Park when visiting The Savill Garden. This limited availability tour allows visitors to understand how Windsor Great Park works in the modern day, as well as learning about its long history. The tour, which lasts approximately one hour, will finish with the rare opportunity to disembark from the coach at the top of the Long Walk, providing unique vistas of London and the iconic view from The Copper Horse statue of George III to Windsor Castle beyond.

Alongside this are a varied selection of experiences for groups which include:

• Windsor Castle and The Savill Garden
• Frogmore House and The Savill Garden
• The Royal Garden and River Boat Cruise – three options that include catering for you to choose from
• Dorney Court and The Savill Garden

The Savill Garden sits in the heart of Windsor Great Park which makes it perfect for rambling groups. We have three recommended walks that you can do from The Savill Building which are:

• Through The Deer Park and to the top of The Long Walk (3.8 miles)
• To The Valley Gardens (1.7 miles)
• A lakeside walk of Virginia Water (5.1 miles)

Events great for groups include:

• RHS Spring Ornamental Competition at The Savill Garden: 13 – 14 April
Competitors from all over the South of the UK will be displaying Camelias, Rhododendrons and spring flowering plants in the hope of winning prestigious prizes.
• Art in The Garden: 25 Sep – 24 Nov
We will be exhibiting over 60 pieces of work of both emerging and internationally acclaimed sculptures from the Surrey Sculpture Society.

The history and heritage of The Garden is brought to life with a private tour of The Savill Garden, led by one of our guides or the gardeners themseleves. And then, why not finish it off with a cream tea or one of our group catering packages from The Savill Garden Kitchen.

The Savill Garden offers the perfect group day out. With coach parking right beside the main entrance, groups can spend their time exploring all 35 acres, taking in the beautifull curated scenery and experiencing the gentle environment around them. And, accessible to all with special group rates and discounts, now is the perfect time to plan and book your 2019 itineraries.
