Fodor's Review

The country home of Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, the prince has been making the 37-acre estate of Highgrove House his personal showcase for traditional and organic growing methods and conservation of native plants and animals since 1980. Here you can appreciate the amazing industry on the part of the royal gardeners who have created the orchards, kitchen garden, and woodland garden almost from nothing. Look for the stumpery, the immaculate and quirky

topiaries, and the national collection of hostas. You can sample the estate's produce in the restaurant and shop, or from its retail outlet in Tetbury. Tickets go on sale in February and sell out quickly, though extra dates are released through the year via a mailing list. Be sure to book well ahead. Allow three to four hours for a visit to the garden, which is 1½ miles southwest of Tetbury. Those under 12 aren't permitted.
