The East Terrace Garden

The East Terrace Garden, Windsor Castle©

When George IV came to the throne in 1820, there was no private garden for him to use at Windsor. As part of the renovations of the castle carried out by the architect Sir Jeffry Wyatville, the site of the former bowling greens in front of the East Terrace was identified as the most suitable place to create such a garden.

The formal layout of the East Terrace Garden created for George IV survives today, and a garden that was once seen as a private retreat, can now be enjoyed by visitors on certain days in the summer months.
