A visit to Highgrove

Posted by on in Garden Visits

A few weeks ago we went on our last college trip to Highgrove home of HRH Prince Charles. We were very lucky to go as one of the people on my course works there and used one of his allocated two visits a year for a mini-bus full of us students!  I hear that there is a two year waiting list for a two hour tour so we were very lucky to get access.  Our guide, our fellow student, took us around the grounds after we had got through security and ensured our cameras were left on the mini-bus.  I was disappointed that I couldn't take photos, it's something that you can look back on and remember your own personal experience. Instead we can buy his book or look at the official website (that link is at the end for you if this has whetted your appetite!).
