The finest private gardens and houses in Britain, Italy, France and South Africa

Day Tours in Britain

We have spent the last few months looking at new gardens and interesting houses across the country and have collected day tours for 2019 from Dorset to Northumberland.

We have new gardens aplenty, including a garden in Dorset re-designed by Arne Maynard, another nearby by the Bannermans. We are spending a day looking at three gardens designed and lived in by three members of the Stuart-Smith family and we have discovered three wonderful gardens in Essex.

We disappointed so many people who were unable to come with us to Raynham Hall in Norfolk and St Giles House in Dorset that we have arranged to return to both this year. We are also visiting two spectacular interiors; one by Sir John Soane at Wotton and the other by Sir Edwin Lutyens at Ashby St Ledgers.

As always, we have tried to ensure that every day gives contrasts in planting, design and now architecture.

We very much hope to see you over the year.
