The Royal Gardens at Highgrove
Nr. Tetbury, Gloucestershire.
Highgrove is the stunning private residence of TRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, near Tetbury in Gloucestershire.
Commitment to Sustainability
Since 1980 when the Prince of Wales first arrived at Highgrove, His Royal Highness has devoted much energy to transforming the gardens around the house, which are opened annually for visitors to share in their enjoyment and are renowned as some of the most inspiring and innovative in the United Kingdom.
Created with imagination and passion by the Prince over the last 38 years, the series of interlinked organic gardens reflect his deep commitment to sustainability, as well as a natural artistic ability. As an important haven for a rich variety of flora and fauna, the gardens have been developed to not only please the eye, but sit in succinct harmony with nature.

“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.” HRH The Prince of Wales.
