Tour of Five Gardens at Eton College

Eton Gardens 1 feature

Thursday 21 July 2016 1.30 to 4.30pm

We are very pleased to invite you to join us in this rare opportunity to visit the series of five beautiful and historic interlocked gardens around Eton College’s ancient buildings where we will be guided around the Luxmoore’s Garden; the Head Master’s Garden; the King of Siam’s Garden; the Provost’s Garden; and the Fellows’ Garden by the Head Gardener Michael Long and his team of gardeners who will be available to answer your questions.

The King of Siam’s Garden; the Provost’s Garden; and the Fellows’ Garden have recently been reworked by James Alexander-Sinclair who is an RHS member, Chelsea Judge and Old Etonian.

With their backdrop of Tudor brickwork and gothic stone pinnacles on the chapel, the gardens vary in style and are not to be missed. Each garden has its own style and magic. Just one example is Luxmoore’s Garden, described as a ‘beautiful enclave of Eton, with its magnolias and myrtles, its lilacs and lilies, its fruit trees and wild flowers, and with the blue flash of its kingfisher’.
