Garden-lovers have the chance to view a historic landscaped garden in Windsor Home Park and raise cash for charities.
Frogmore Garden - the private garden at Frogmore House will be opened in aid of the National Gardens Scheme (NGS), St John Ambulance and Blind Veterans UK.
The favourite royal retreat on the Crown Estate will open up from May 14-16 to raise money for three national charities on different days.
Visitors will be able to explore the garden’s historic plantings, including tulip trees and redwoods, plus features including views of Queen Victoria’s Tea House and an 18th century lake.
It will open on Tuesday, May 14 in aid of the NHS scheme, on Wednesday, May 15 for St John Ambulance and on Thursday, May 16 for Blind Veterans UK.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
