The Savill Building was opened in June 2006 by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, Ranger of Windsor Great Park. The striking environmentally sensitive project, that acts as a focal point for The Royal Landscape project covering The Savill Garden, Valley Gardens and Virginia Water, has won architectural awards for its outstanding design and craftsmanship, and it is easy to understand why. It is quite a magical concept, and the building is so pleasing to all the senses that it is definitely a place to visit and return to often. The last time I went to Savill Garden was twenty years ago. Now, at last, I have ventured a few miles from home to experience the new building, and it’s a trip I would recommend to all locals and visitors to Windsor. Look how close it is to world-class locations (including the Cow Pond!):
