Frogmore House was built in the 1680s and was first occupied by George FitzRoy, an illegitimate son of Charles II. Since then the House has had many royal residents and is now owned by the Crown Estate. It is a Grade 1 listed building. The interior reflects the interests of a long line of royal tenants. After an exclusive guided tour of the House, Friends will be taken to the Savill Garden nearby. The Garden was designed by Sir Edward Savill in the 1930s and contains many unique and magnificent garden features such as the Rose Garden opened by HM the Queen in 2010.
The visit to Frogmore House will start at 10.00am and last for 90 minutes. Unfortunately Frogmore House does not provide tea or coffee facilities. Friends will then be taken by bus to the Savill Garden where they can buy lunch and then explore the sights in the different garden areas.
The visit is limited to 16 Friends and booking will be on a first-come, first serve basis when booking online or at The Lightbox Reception. A bus will leave Goldsworth Park Recreation Ground Car Park, Wishbone Way, Woking at 9.00am and will leave from The Savill Garden to return to Woking at 3pm.
Advance booking is required.
