The East Terrace Garden at Windsor Castle is open on weekends in August and September 2020. This is the first time the garden opens to the public in more than 40 years! The garden was first designed for George IV to provide a pleasant view from the King’s new suite of royal apartments along the east front of the Castle. During the Second World War, Her Majesty The Queen (then Princess Elizabeth) and her sister, Princess Margaret, cultivated tomatoes, sweetcorn and dwarf beans on flowerbeds in the garden that were repurposed as allotments.
The garden has been open intermittently over the centuries, and this is a great opportunity to visit the East Terrace Garden at Windsor Castle for the first time in over 40 years!
