The Savill Garden covers approximately 35 acres and dates from 1932 when it was started by Eric Savill, Deputy Ranger of Windsor Great Park, with the support of King George V and Queen Mary. Originally known as The Bog Garden, George VI asked that it be renamed in honour of Eric Savill in 1951. Eric Savill was knighted in 1955. The area is ideally suited to the cultivation of rhododendrons and azaleas and so is at its best in April and May, but development over the years ensures interest all year round and the garden is now considered one of the finest woodland gardens anywhere in the world, containing a great number of rare specimens.
