If you want to put your BBC Gardeners’ World 2 for 1 Gardens entry card and guide to good use this year, The Savill Garden is a must-visit. Set like a jewel in the heart of Windsor Great Park, it’s a garden for all seasons, always filled with colour and sights to behold, but during the summer months especially you can delight in its magnificent roses.

The iconic Rose Garden, opened by Queen Elizabeth II in July 2010, features a striking raised walkway that allows you to immerse yourself in all the wonderful colour and fragrance of the stunning flowers. But this is just one highlight amongst many you can appreciate here.

Originally commissioned by George V and created by Eric Savill in 1932, The Savill Garden is a 35-acre haven made up of thoughtfully designed interconnecting gardens that elegantly flow into one another via winding paths, each coming into its own through the seasons.

Over the years, generations of plant-hunters have contributed numerous specimens to the space, nurturing a diverse array of flora that come alive throughout the year, from Himalayan flowers in the winter beds and perfumed roses in the summer, to azaleas in the spring woodland and autumn’s Japanese maples.

With such remarkable seasonal displays, it should come as no surprise the late Queen continued the Royal love affair started by her grandfather. Not only did she open the rose garden at Savill, but she also inaugurated The Queen Elizabeth Temperate House in 1995 and in 2002 The Golden Jubilee Garden, an updated take on the traditional cottage garden, which was created to celebrate her 50th anniversary as Monarch.
