8 days/8 nights
Part of the ‘Capability’ Brown 300 Celebrations!
This tour is designed as a brief introduction to the gardens in two of England’s loveliest areas, Kent and The Heart of England. There are flower-filled gardens, formal and informal, large and small, planned and wild, all bursting into riots of colour and overloading the senses with fragrant smells and sights.
Going beyond the usual tourist route in our mini-coach, off the beaten track where those herded on impersonal big buses can’t go, we will introduce you to some local treasures as well as the major sites. Your multi-talented driver/guide will fill in each touring day as time will permit, with visits to some little local gems, participants in the National Gardens Scheme, gardens open for charity. We’ll see properties designed by some of the ‘Best of British,’ Gertrude Jekyll, ‘Capability’ Brown and maybe discover the next ‘Big Thing’ at the Chelsea Flower Show.
2016 marks the 300th anniversary of Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown’s birth. Join us in participating in the Capability Brown Tercentenary, 1716 – 2016
