Overview
Stop and smell the roses on this leisurely tour of South East England's greatest gardens and show-stealing stately homes. And the jewel in the crown? A trip to the green-fingered event of the year, the Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower Show.

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 the region. Ightham Mote dates back over 700 years, and can only be reached by crossing an ancient stone bridge that stretches over its very own moat. Our next iconic stop will transport us to Scotney Castle before we end our action-packed day in Tunbridge Wells, where we'll enjoy a welcome dinner. Meals - Dinner

Day 2 - Turnbridge Wells - Sissinghurst - Great Dixter - Turnridge Wells
This morning our road will turn east to Sissinghurst Castle Gardens, renowned for their romantic design and colourful rose arrangements. Next, we'll swap architectural layouts for a naturalistic approach to planting at Great Dixter. 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. Meals - Breakfast

Day 3 - Turnbridge Wells - Hever Castle - RHS Garden Wisley - Windsor
Today we'll venture to the award-winning gardens of Hever Castle, the castle that was the childhood home of Anne Boleyn – Henry VIII's second queen. We'll enjoy the afternoon among the tranquil surrounds of RHS Garden Wisley, taking in the sounds of the water flowing through the rock garden and relaxing in the Alpine Meadow before we continue on to Windsor. Meals - Breakfast & Dinner

Day 4 - Windsor - The Savill Garden - Windsor
What better way to spend the day than by discovering Windsor's regal highlights? After exploring independently, we'll come back together to visit The Savill Garden in Windsor Great Park. Look out for an array of rare plants from around the world as we walk through its themed gardens that showcase the beauty of the seasons. Meals - Breakfast

Day 5 - Windsor - Waddesdon manor - Cliveden - London
This morning we'll swap English country houses for an elegant French château at Waddesdon Manor. Next, we'll marvel at the grand designs at Cliveden, with its colourful gardens for every season and glorious views over the River Thames. Then it's time to travel to London, and look forward to the excitement of the days to come. Meals - Breakfast

Day 6 - London - Chelsea Flower Show - London
The highlight of our adventure, the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, is yours to enjoy for a full day. From gardens designed to conjure up a slice of anywhere from Provence to Japan, to urban patches with remarkable water features, this is the place to see the very best of contemporary garden design. To round off the day, we'll sit down together for a farewell dinner. Meals - Breakfast & Dinner

Day 7 - London - Kew Gardens - London
There are still one or two natural treasures to explore before we say goodbye. For a finishing touch, we'll visit Kew Royal Botanic Gardens. The palm house, a jaw-dropping example of Victorian engineering, is sure to add a final flourish to that holiday photo album. Meals - Breakfast
