After an airport drop off at Heathrow for a friend I wanted to find somewhere to go and explore before I headed home. After some searching I found Savill Garden a part of the Windsor Great Park Estate.
It was so lovely to hear the birds singing a morning chorus, the squirrels exploring and numerous pheasants foraging amongst the emerging spring flowers.
Already a beautiful display of colour is on display at the gardens and the gardens have been very well thought out for all times of the year. I loved the bright colours of the cornus stems against the background of the gardens and the blankets of daffodils and crocuses that covered sections of the grass areas.
A few sections of the gardens were closed off for maintenance but that’s to be expected at this time of year. I will definitely be heading back again later in the year to see the roses in bloom and take in the all summer offerings in the gardens.
With a coffee shop and restaurant on site you can enjoy a lovely meal or something a little lighter during your visit, I enjoyed a light lunch at The Gallery Café.
There is lots of parking but I can imagine this gets busy, parking prices are above average for visit gardens (£12 for 3+ hours and payment by card only) and is not included in the entry price. There are also several walking routes from the car park including to the Cow Pond which was was renovated in 2012 to commemorate H.M. The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
