The East Terrace Garden at Windsor Castle is open to visitors at weekends this summer for only the second time in decades. You can explore the garden and enjoy the view across the surrounding Windsor parkland. 

The large formal garden, created by George IV in the 1820s, is overlooked by Windsor Castle’s famous east façade and features clipped domes of yew and beds of roses planted in a geometric pattern around a central fountain. In 1971 The Duke of Edinburgh redesigned the flowerbeds and commissioned the bronze lotus fountain based on his own design for the centre of garden.

Family friendly art activities for children are also available.

Please note, due to the current need for social distancing, places for the activities are limited and will be filled on a first come, first served basis.

  • Whilst it is not possible for wheelchair users to access the East Terrace Garden, they can get a good view of the area from the Terrace itself.
