The world is full of beautiful gardens, but there are few better than those in Great Britain and Ireland. From the Northern Isles of Orkney to the High Peaks of Derbyshire — we’ve got the lot.

Whether stately or cosy, we take a sneak peek into homes and gardens up and down the country, where we admire the work of passionate individuals and time-honoured teams of visionaries.

And from lasting landmarks to fleeting one-day-only experiences...we’ve spectacular shows on offer from Chelsea to Cheshire, and beyond. Sure, we might not have tropical rainforests or alpine meadows, but when it comes to great gardens, we say — “rule Britannia!”

And now, with our 2018 tours, you can get even more. It is all about the little extras: the porterage, the drinks at dinner, the extra stars on your hotel. If you're travelling with us in 2018, prepare to get a lot more Brightwater for your buck.
