Buckingham Garden Centre

We are a family run garden centre that is well known nationally as a specialist for bare rooted hedging plants and young trees. The Garden Centre always has a good selection of shrubs and plants which are not commonly found elsewhere, together with a wide range of the more commonly sought after plants. Established for over 50 years, the Garden Centre has recently been redeveloped to a high standard. Our shop contains the largest selection of seeds and bulbs for miles around, together with garden chemicals, tools, garden furniture and many other goods. Outside we stock peat-based and peat-free composts, paving, fencing, timber decking, garden buildings and greenhouses, and a large range of pots, statues and garden ornaments. Our aquatics centre has a good reputation for their excellent quality tropical, marine and cold water fish. The Gardeners' Retreat, our coffee shop/restaurant, serves fresh home cooked food and is an excellent way to round off any visit to the Garden Centre.

Buckingham Palace State Rooms visit starts at 11.00am and the Garden Tour commences at around 13.30pm and lasts approx 45 minutes.

Enjoy a leisurely day out at Buckingham Palace with a combined visit to the State Rooms and a guided tour of the most remarkable features of the famous garden. The Garden Highlights Tour includes the beautiful Herbaceous Border, the Wisteria-clad summer house and the Rose Garden, the enormous Waterloo Vase and the Palace tennis court, where The Duke of York, later  King George VI and Fred Perry played in the 1930s.

Buckingham House was built in 1705. It was acquired by George III in 1761 and Lancelot Brown laid out the grounds. In the 19th Century John Nash converted it into the Palace which survives. The lake was made in 1828 and Brown's parkland became a palace garden in the Romantic Gardenesque style.  It is a private garden for the Royal family but is used for garden parties and parts of it can be seen by the public in the course of a palace tour in August and September.
