Border Lines tours to the finest private gardens

Day Tours in England

We continue to expand the number of house interiors that we will be visiting over the summer. We are delighted that these include a whole day at Deene Park (Tour 3), a visit to the Fenwick’s astonishing house at Shilstone (Tour 6) and the wonderfully restored Norton Conyers (Tour 12).

We have two three-day mini-tours, one to Devon and the other to Yorkshire, which can be taken as single days if you do not wish to opt for all three. We have a range of inspiring gardens new to Border Lines, as well as some favourites that we have visited in the past, but which are so well worth returning to.

The formula of a Border Lines day remains unchanged. We usually visit three gardens and start the day with coffee and biscuits, there will be a two-course lunch and the day will end with tea. Travel between the gardens will be by coach with the exception of Tours 3, 7, 10 and 14.

This year, by popular request, we are limiting the size of both English and foreign groups. The English tours will have no more than 25 people, with the exception of Tour 3 where we have a maximum of 20 people.

Tours Abroad

Border Lines is also going to Naples in April and May and Southern Tuscany in May. We are planning to return to South Africa in October 2019, which will allow us time to discover more new gardens.

We now market all the tours abroad by email in the autumn and so if you are not already on our email list and would like to be added to it please let me know. If you would like further information on any of the English days or on our tours to Europe please do not hesitate to contact Karin or James.
