Barbican Association By Royal Appointment


I Gaby Robertshaw


n the weeks between the pageantry of the Royal Wedding and the sensory delights that are Chelsea Flower Show I was joined by a group of Barbican Association members at Buckingham Palace for a private tour of Her Majesty’s gardens. This oasis of calm amidst London’s bustle, aside from the Royal family their guests and staff, pays host to three huge garden parties each year when upwards of 27,000 cups of tea are consumed – what a difference – that day there were just 15 of us sipping our tea and coffee.


It is thanks to monarchs from Henry VIII to George III who kick started the tradition for Royal gardening on a grand scale that London has a unique ‘green lung’ in the centre of which sits Buckingham Palace. Today Prince Charles continues the tradition at


Highgrove. His 15-acre Cotswold garden, the subject of many books and documentaries, latterly with the BBC and Alan Titchmarsh (a fellow Yorkshireman) now celebrates 30 years of his hands on devotion. BA members are invited to apply for details of a special autumn visit to Highgrove by emailing gaby3@tiscali.co.uk


And remember that the Barbican association’s annual membership per address is just £5 paid by direct debit, entitling you to join these excursions as well as having access to valuable discounts from those listed in the following pages.
