Garden Visits - Spring / Summer 2017

A programme of exclusive Garden Visits - to book for yourself or as a great gift for a friend.

We are delighted to introduce our 2017 programme of very special Garden Visits and Design Study Days, offering exclusive access to private gardens with insightful guided tours by owners and experts. Thoughtfully planned and organised by our diligent and knowledgeable Volunteer Garden Visits committee, these sociable, informative days are not to be missed. All days include morning coffee, afternoon tea and a delicious two-course lunch with wine. Travel between venues is provided where appropriate. To streamline the day, we encourage you to travel by train to the nearest station and join the transport provided to reach the various gardens.

We are grateful to all the garden owners who have so kindly agreed to open their gates to us. Our programme helps to raise funds for the Garden Museum, which is a registered charity that receives no public funding for its running costs. Please note that for reasons of privacy and/or security, some owners occasionally make restrictions about photography of their gardens. This will be futher explained on the day of your visit.
