Guided Tours of England

Warwick Castle Blenheim Bridge

Gardens

Discover the best of the nation’s passion for gardens in the Heart of England, from the formality of the glorious gardens of Blenheim Palace and Staffordshire’s Trentham Gardens, to the follies of the Rococo Gardens in the picturesque village of Painswick. In the midst of the city noise and bustle find an oasis of peace in Birmingham’s Botanical Gardens. Admire the beauty and skill, together with the dramatic setting, of the famous Cotswold gardens of Hidcote and Kiftsgate. See the grandiose landscape designs of “Capability” Brown or the tiny, tucked away commemorative garden of the plant collector “Chinese” Wilson.
