About the Gardens

"One of my great joys is to see the pleasure that the garden can bring to many of the visitors and that everybody seems to find some part of it that is special to them,His Majesty King Charles III

Highgrove is the private residence of Their Majesties King Charles III and Queen Camilla, near Tetbury in Gloucestershire. Since 1980, when His Majesty The King first arrived at Highgrove, he has devoted much energy to transforming the gardens around the house, which are renowned as some of the most inspiring and innovative in the United Kingdom.

The series of interlinked gardens have been created with imagination and passion over some 40 years and reflect The King's natural artistic ability. Managed organically and sustainably, the gardens have become an important haven for a rich variety of flora and fauna.

The gardens have been designed, as The King says, to "please the eye and sit in harmony with nature". From the classic order of the Cottage Garden to the pastoral beauty of the Wildflower Meadow, there are highlights in every season. A landscape which was once simply lawn has been transformed into a magnificent, ever-changing canvas.

Discover the gardens' delights, along with hidden curios and horticultural innovations, on a tour that offers a rare glimpse into the life of HM King Charles III.
