New for 2020:
Finally opening to the public next year, we are delighted to offer you the chance to be among the first to visit the new RHS Garden Bridgewater. This exciting new project is home to an 11-acre walled garden along with a large lake and extensive woodland. It’s the RHS’s first new garden in 17 years and a visit here will appeal to any lover of horticulture.
If you’re keen to stay in the UK for your holidays next year, why not treat yourself to a place on our new Cornwall and Tresco trip? Combining the very best of this unforgettable county, you can visit the subtropical Abbey Gardens on the car-free isle of Tresco and then return to the mainland for tours of Bosvigo – the favourite garden of TV’s Carol Klein – and the Italianate garden of Lamorran House, among others.
For the more adventurous sun-seekers among us, we have a very special brand new tour that will take you to the gorgeous Spice Island – Grenada. This magnificent Caribbean destination will allow you to join popular Brightwater guide Trevor Edwards on visits to stunning private gardens in the company of their owners and on excursions to a water-propelled run distillery, a fully-working historic plantation and bird-watching area. Endemic wildlife, landscapes fragrant with ginger and nutmeg, and the charms of island life await.
Only in 2020:
If you’re looking for a once-in-a-lifetime kind of trip to take in the new year, you’re in luck. We have two very special holidays on offer that you can only experience in 2020. The first is the World Association of Flower Arranging’s showpiece event, which takes place once every three years. In 2020, it will be held in the vibrant Indian city of Jaipur and we can take you there. Our nine-day itinerary will treat you to two full days at the WAFA event, but it will also take you to the Taj Mahal, the Amber Fort, the stunning Lodi Gardens and even to the Maharajah’s City Palace, which is still used by Jaipur’s royal family today.
Or, grab the rare chance to witness the legendary Oberammergau Passion Play, which takes place just once per decade. 2020 will mark the 42nd performance and it started back in 1634 after villagers vowed to recreate the story of Christ’s life, death and resurrection if they were spared the deadly plague. Along with sitting down to watch this iconic performance, you’ll also ride the historic Zillertal Steam Railway, explore the delights of Salzburg and pay a visit to Emperor Maximillian I’s Golden Roof.
