The Gardens

  • The gardens are not easily accessible for people with reduced mobility. Visitors are strongly advised to arrive either by car, and park at the Flotille or Neptune car park, or on foot, via the Queen’s Gate located on Boulevard de la Reine (which can be accessed from the Park).
  • If you wish to access the gardens from the Princes Courtyard at the Palace, vehicular access to the Honour Courtyard is free on presentation of documentary proof, e.g. a sticker or mobility card. Parking spaces are available, allowing you to access the gardens more easily. When you arrive, please alert the Estate staff at the Honour Gate.
