Sandringham House, HM The Queen’s Norfolk retreat, is surrounded by 60 acres of glorious informal gardens. Head Gardener Martin Woods will be leading the tour, revealing why they have been called “the best of the royal gardens”.

The formal planting of the Edwardian age has given way to great sweeping glades, bordered by splendid specimen trees and shrubs, to create an informal garden full of colour and interest throughout the year. Woodland walks, lakes and streams, sheets of spring flowering bulbs, avenues of rhododendrons and azaleas, beds of lavender and roses and dazzling autumn colour ensure there is always something to see.

Other highlights include the formal North Garden, Queen Alexandra’s summerhouse perched above the lake beside its own cascading stream, 16 species of oak and many commemorative trees. After exploring these vast gardens, lunch will be served in the Main Restaurant, following which guests can visit the house and museum at their leisure.

Please note: There will be a lot of walking on this tour, therefore we regret that it is not suitable for wheelchair users or people with mobility issues.
