Our UK Garden Tours 2022 include:

A Grand Tour of the Gardens of England
Inspired by an itinerary we arranged for one of our regular private groups from New Zealand, this circular tour of the southern half of England brings together the very best gardens of the region, with visits to one outstanding horticultural gem after another, covering the widest possible range of styles and content.

In East Anglia we visit favourites such as Beth Chatto's gardens and the wonderful East Ruston Old Vicarage before heading west to Gloucestershire. Highlights here include the quintessentially English Hidcote Manor, 15th century Hampton Court Castle and of course Prince Charles' beloved garden at Highgrove. We move southwards into Devon, where RHS Garden Rosemoor steals the show, and onwards to Cornwall, where the ground-breaking Eden Project is contrasted with traditional woodland gardens, plus a chance to visit the amazing Abbey Garden in the Scilly Isles.

Travelling along the south coast we call in at historic Abbotsbury and the distinguished Sir Harold Hillier Garden & Arboretum before meandering through Sussex with visits to Leonardslee and Nymans. We savour the classic English gardens of Sissinghurst, Great Dixter and Great Comp before enjoying an exclusive farewell dinner with our new-found friends and travelling companions in the unique surroundings of RHS Garden Wisley.
