Great Fosters – Summer 2021
Great Fosters is an endlessly charming Tudor estate steeped in royal history and located just outside Windsor in the heart of Surrey. Set in 50 acres of stunning gardens and grounds, which include a listed topiary garden, fountain, Saxon moat with a romantic Japanese bridge and even a sundial gifted to the Estate by Sir Francis Drake himself, the instantly recognisable red-brick facade and chimney tops are a sight to behold as you drive down to the front door.
