Great Gardens of Cornwall

17 - 24 April 2022

Cornwall gardens are famed for exciting, rare and unusual plants and trees, mixing subtropical splendour with old English romance. They are most alive in spring, blooming with extravagance, backdropped by manor houses and rugged coastal cliffs.

Join Violets and Tea as we celebrate the great Cornwall gardens enjoying exclusive access of the most historically and horticulturally important gardens in this beautiful corner of England.
