Great Estates of Derbyshire & the Hampton Court Garden Festival

3 - 10 July 2022

Weathered stone, pastoral landscapes and verdant hills set the scene on this intimate tour of the finest English estates and historic gardens in Derbyshire. A superb tour exploring the rich history of English Aristocracy who created family gardens designed to impress. Think walled gardens, sweeping landscapes and romantic settings. When it comes to garden tours in the UK, this is truly one of the most magical.

And if that wasn’t enough, enjoy the Preview Evening of the RHS Hampton Court Garden Festival.
