November 2018 and brilliant Autumn colours should last for the next two weeks. We feature some of the best places to visit to see the colours  on our gardens gallery. Join us as we detail all the best gardens to visit this month.

We feature gardens to visit in  England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland. We also include many comfortable places to stay nearby. Use the index on the left for regional maps so that you can plan your journey. Or just search for Gardens near me.

Our guide attracts visitors from all over the world - we know that because we often receive feedback. We started the guide as a hobby in 2002, as at that time there were few resources on the internet to help people plan their visits. The first region we covered was Cornwall and by the time 12 months elapsed more than 200 gardens had applied to join. Over the last year we  have had around 1 million  viewers from almost every continent on the world, with 6 million page views. As a result we have generated significant income for our members. With over 500 properties on our guide and more applying to join we should maintain our place as a leading resource for garden lovers.

Within our guide you will find a number of beautiful Japanese Gardens in England which are especially of great interest to those people now creating one.

If you would like us to plan your itinerary for you we have a wide range of guided holidays in England, Scotland and Wales all at very reasonable prices. We also have a range of tours throughout the world so why not request one of our free brochures. It does not matter where you live as there are departure points throughout the UK. Many visitors from overseas take advantage of the tours.

We are now smart-phone friendly so that you can plan your gardens to visit wherever you are. 
We thank you for your support over the years.
