Few members of the royal family have been as enthusiastic about their garden as Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Inspired by the gardens of Europe, they created a haven where they could escape public scrutiny, take walks, plant trees, and grow fruit, vegetables and cut flowers. Take a walk in their footsteps to see glorious views from the terrace and explore the walled garden, the many historic trees, and the gardens of the Swiss Cottage that belonged to the royal children.
