Itinerary
Day 1 - London - Igtham Mote - Scotney Castle - Turnbridge Wells  
Our tour of England’s green and pleasant land will begin at one of the most unique manor houses in Kent: Ightham Mote. This medieval house dates back over 700 years, and can only be reached via an ancient stone bridge that stretches over its very own moat. This afternoon we'll visit the charming Scotney Castle, where we'll take some time to wander the gardens before we end our delightful day in Tunbridge Wells. Tonight, there’s a welcome dinner on the agenda. 

Day 2 - Turnbridge Wells - Sissinghurst - Great Dixter - Turnridge Wells  
This morning our road will turn east to Sissinghurst Castle Garden, an iconic retreat that’s renowned for its romantic design and colourful rose arrangements. Then: we’ll swap sculpted layouts for a naturalistic approach to planting at Great Dixter. Here, we’ll tour the old timber-framed house that was home to famous British gardener Christopher Lloyd – and explore the gardens that were his pride and joy. 

Day 3 - Turnbridge Wells - Hever Castle - RHS Garden Wisley - Windsor 
After breakfast in Tunbridge Wells, we’ll make tracks to the award-winning gardens of Hever Castle – the childhood home of Henry VIII’s second queen, Anne Boleyn. This afternoon will see us wandering tranquil RHS Garden Wisley, taking in the sounds of the water flowing through the rock garden and relaxing in the Alpine Meadow. Rich in history and royal tradition, Windsor will be our final stop of the day. 

Day 4 - Windsor - The Savill Garden - Windsor  
What better way to spend the day than discovering Windsor’s regal highlights? First, we’ll visit the Savill Garden in Windsor Great Park. As we walk through the themed gardens, be sure to keep an eye out for an array of rare plants from around the world! After some free time, an afternoon tea cruise awaits us back in Windsor. 

Day 5 - Windsor - Waddesdon manor - Cliveden - London 
This morning we’ll swap English country houses for an elegant French château: the Grade One listed Waddesdon Manor. Then: onwards to Cliveden, which boasts colourful gardens for every season (not to mention glorious views over the River Thames). This afternoon, we’ll return to London – where we’ll look forward to the excitement of the days to come. 

Day 6 - London - Chelsea Flower Show - London 
Today the RHS Chelsea Flower Show will be yours to enjoy. From urban patches with remarkable water features to gardens that conjure images of different countries from around the world, this spectacular event showcases the very best of contemporary garden design.
