The RHS is delighted to be working closely with Brightwater Holidays the garden tour specialists. We want to celebrate inspirational and pioneering gardeners and horticulturalists who changed the face of gardening through their personal vision and determination. Itineraries encompass private gardens and garden festivals, wild landscapes and national parks as well as vineyards, nurseries and charitable projects. You can expect to meet Curators, Head Gardeners and the owners of private gardens where available. Additionally, RHS hosts will accompany many of the tours giving you the opportunity to benefit from their insight as well as get answers to your personal gardening questions.

With such rich inspiration, we hope that you find a tour that appeals to you and look forward to welcoming you on one of our RHS Garden Holidays very soon. If you need any further incentive, remember that a contribution from every booking goes towards supporting the charitable work of the RHS, from the Campaign for School Gardening to our invaluable scientific research.

Finally, we're very pleased to announce a brand new offer, exclusively for RHS members, on 2018 Brightwater tours — see below for the full details, as well as the terms and conditions.

With warm wishes and happy travels
