The East Terrace Garden at Windsor Castle is open to visitors at weekends for the first time in decades. You can to explore the garden and enjoy the view from its terraces 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.

You can learn more about the history of the gardens in our news story or by hearing a short introduction given in the garden every 20 minutes during the afternoon (from 12:00-15:00).

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.
