Garden Holidays & Escorted Tours
There are fewer greater pleasures than spending time in a beautiful garden. A glorious garden lifts the spirits, inspires the mind and delights the eye.
We have been creating garden-themed holidays for over twenty years and take great pride in providing tours which take you to the finest of gardens and garden events around the world where you can enjoy rich tapestries of colours, textures and plantsmanship.
GARDEN ESTATES OF STATELY & HISTORIC HOMES, CASTLES AND CHATEAUX
Travel to see beautiful private gardens, perfectly manicured lawns and decorative borders of stately homes, historic castles and chateaux in England and Europe. Or holiday further afield to experience a wild rainforest garden in Bali or St Lucia, nestled in a tropical valley with a profusion of exotically scented blooms and cascading waterfalls.
FROM THE SINGAPORE GARDEN FESTIVAL TO FLORIADE
There are so many wonderful global gardens shows and events to experience, from the biennial Singapore Garden Festival to Floralia in Belgium (held every four years in Ghent since 1808) and the impressive Floriade Expo in the Netherlands. Every ten years, Floriade brings together the most innovative and creative examples of landscaping and green excellence in a celebration of horticultural excellence. The next Floriade takes place in 2022 and will have the theme 'Growing Green Cities’, offer inspiring ideas about future green cities and sustainability.
ANNUAL GARDEN HOLIDAYS MOST ENJOYED
Undoubtedly one of our most popular garden destinations each year is Keukenhof, the largest flowering garden in the world featuring an incredible array of tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, and many other Spring flowering spectacles of colour and heady scents. Having been at the heart of the garden industry for hundreds of years, The Netherlands offers the garden traveller an array of other interesting visits, from Hortus Botanicus in Leiden and live flower auctions in Aalsmeer, to intimate private gardens in Amsterdam that date back to The Dutch Golden Age.
PRIVATE GARDEN VISITS - SPECIALLY ARRANGED VISITS AND TALKS
We also find many of you like to visit private gardens and enjoy talks by head gardeners and plant experts when travelling to gardens. From meeting the head grower at David Austin Roses to a guided tour of a private roof-top garden in South East Asia (the largest!), we love finding hidden gems to excite garden and plant aficionados and amateurs alike.
We hope you enjoy looking through the best of our garden holidays.
