Summer Delights of Yorkshire

26 June - 3 July 2022

Yorkshire is perhaps Violets and Tea’s favourite garden region in all of England - and that is saying a lot! Contrasting historic estates and contemporary masterpieces with intimate family gardens, we visit the best gardens in Yorkshire marvelling in the ambitions of their creators.

Come join us on this wonderful tour where every garden we visit is bound to take your breath away.

Admire magnificent Castle Howard, one of England's finest stately homes

Embrace the beauty of Newby Hall & Garden on a private tour of this stunning Queen Anne house and the extensive grounds 

Explore the dramatic terraces of Parcevall Hall with views over the stunning Yorkshire Dales.

Enjoy Piet Oudolf's ground-breaking, contemporary garden at Scampston Hall

Indulge in a traditional afternoon tea at Luton Hoo, nestled within a historic Lancelot 'Capability' Brown landscape

Seven nights' five-star accommodation in handpicked hotels

We partner with select small, luxury hotels that provide exceptional levels of service, to ensure that our customers can experience a restful, comfortable evening after a day strolling through gardens.

Many of our hotels are old English homes and estates, offering charm as well as a few quirks. We hope that you enjoy these quirks as much as we do, as we feel they are part of the English experience.
