In the 80s, Prince Charles set up home in the Gloucestershire estate of Highgrove. Tours of its manicured gardens run from April to October each year - especially good when polished off with a champagne afternoon tea in the Orchard Tea Room. Filming for these scenes actually took place in the 18th-century, Grade II-listed Somerley House on the bucolic cusp of Hampshire's New Forest and Dorset. This particular pile isn't open to the public, so if you want to get under the skin of the new season, you'll have to hire it out for a private event.
