Blooming Marvellous Holidays

Strolling through wildflower meadows, admiring rare exotic flowers blooming whilst enjoying the peace and quiet of a country garden, the British public seem to love nothing better than walking around the many gardens and country estates that Great Britain has to offer. So much so that interest in Garden Holidays is on the rise and this has not been missed by the Royal Horticultural Society, whom have teamed up with Collette Worldwide Holidays and Wendy Wu the China specialists, to put together their very own brochures specialising in Garden holidays.
Collette Worldwide Holidays are well known for their fully escorted touring holidays and this sits perfectly with such specialised touring as Garden Holidays. The brochure is packed with holidays far and wide from the Loire Valley to New Zealand’s very own garden Route, offering you the chance to visit private gardens not usually open to the public as well as private entry to public gardens. Whilst certain dates will have a specialist RHS tour leader, such as a curator from one of their very own gardens or an experienced horticulturist with particular expertise on the specific region, either way this is guaranteed to give added horticultural depth to the overall holiday experience.
Wendy Wu the China specialist, offer 3 tours which aim to follow in the footsteps of the original plant hunters, showcasing the country’s rich and diverse flora as well as taking in some of the famous sights and sounds. The 15 day Gardens of China is great for first time visitors, taking in Beijing’s Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square, The Great Wall and Terracotta Warriors as well a Li River cruise and a variety of gardens along the way including the Summer Palace Gardens and Xian Botanical Gardens, home to over 3400 species of plant.
When you book a RHS Garden holiday you get the added bonus of 12 month complimentary membership to the RHS. This allows free entry to 80 gardens around the country, priority booking and discounted tickets to RHS shows, a monthly magazine and personalised gardening advice.
