A very nice tour of the royal gardens led by a very well informed and knowledgeable guide who delighted us with some very good anecdotes and obviously knew the planting and trees very well. I would highly recommend this tour.

Such an interesting visit. Very knowledgable guide, and so interesting to be taken round the gardens which were quite an eye-opener to Prince Charles's mind. Lovely house - pity we coiulnmnt go inside. Everything reassuringly expensive, as you would expect.

What a fantastic day visiting Highgrove. The guide shared a great insight into the development of the gardens. It made a change to see a garden created from love and devotion and not a sprawling landscape. Well worth a visit
