LIVE on Crowdcast, Wednesday 10 March, 7.00 pm
Hampton Court Palace will be closed on Wednesday 19 May 2021. Hampton Court Green car park is closed from 17 May - 20 May and on-site parking may be busier than usual.
Chief Curator Lucy Worsley is joined by Gardens & Estates Manager Graham Dillamore and curator Lee Prosser for a fascinating exploration of royal gardens, past and present.
In this “Battle of the Gardens”, our experts will explore the world of historic horticulture and the techniques and trends that have graced our palaces, before letting you decide which one you think should be crowned the best historic royal garden. Will it be the restored Kitchen Garden at Hillsborough Castle, the beautiful White Garden at Kensington Palace built to commemorate Diana, Princess of Wales, the formal Baroque Privy Garden at Hampton Court Palace or its intimate Pond Garden? Whether you’re a green-fingered enthusiast or a gardening novice, this one-hour talk is one not to be missed!
This event is free to join, but we ask you to consider making a donation of £10 or whatever you can afford.
Historic Royal Palaces is a self-funding charity. The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on our finances and we are facing a £100 million shortfall.
