After her death, her son-in-law, Prince Albert, commissioned the building of an elegant mausoleum to hold her remains.  Queen Victoria was particularly fond of Frogmore’s peaceful ambience and it became her favourite retreat. The Savill Garden is a true wonder. Its a garden for all seasons and a place of beauty and colour that’s loved by horticulturalists and enthusiasts alike. Visitors can journey through 35 acres of interconnecting gardens and exotic woodland. Every garden has its own unique attraction, featuring a distinctive group of plants that introduce a fresh burst of vibrant colour throughout the seasons. The Rose Garden, opened by H.M. the Queen in 2010, is a magnificent addition.
