Further details:Sandringham House, HM The Queen's Norfolk retreat, is surrounded by 24ha (60 acres) of glorious informal gardens which have been called "the best of the Royal gardens". The formal planting of the Edwardian age has given way to great sweeping glades, bordered by splendid specimen trees and shrubs, to create an informal garden full of colour and interest throughout the year: woodland walks, lakes and streams, sheets of spring-flowering bulbs, avenues of rhododendrons and azaleas, beds of lavender and roses, dazzling autumn colour - there is always something to see. Other highlights include the formal North Garden, Queen Alexandra's summerhouse perched above the lake beside its own cascading stream, sixteen species of oak and many commemorative trees.
