Windsor Castle

The Queen’s Jubilee Garden at Windsor Castle was created for the Golden Jubilee of Her Majesty in 2002. It forms the main approach to the castle for visitors, on the former site of a car park.

The design draws on the tradition of the picturesque at Windsor, which has been the dominant influence on the place since the time of George III. Gentle serpentine forms bring the romantic character of the home park closer to the castle and town. A new bandstand made from York stone, Purbeck stone and Cumbrian slate, is the only significant built feature. Although modest in extent, the garden has transformed the setting of the castle as seen by over a million visitors every year.
