2 Days from £164

 

For 2021, we are pleased to offer a chance to explore two of the most visited gardens in the country.

Kew Gardens, one of the most renowned botanic gardens in the world is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to over 50,000 living plants where you can stroll along a soaring treetop walkway, wander through tropical glasshouses and see lush tropical forest inside the humid Palm House. Historic home of the Royal Horticultural Society, the beautiful Wisley Garden is home to numerous formal and informal decorative gardens, several glasshouses and an extensive arboretum. It includes small scale "model gardens" which are intended to show visitors what they can achieve in their own outdoor spaces.

Ideally situated just two miles over the Thames from Kew is our base for the stay – the very comfortable HOLIDAY INN BRENTFORD LOCK. Overlooking the Grand Union Canal, the hotel features a restaurant/bar lounge and fitness centre. All of the bright, contemporary en suite bedrooms have tv, mini bar, telephone, trouser press and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all floors.

Brief Itinerary

Saturday 14th August
Departing Newark early morning, (please see specified pick up points below), we travel south with a comfort break en route so to RHS Wisley. In summer the famous 128-metre long Mixed Borders are a particular delight, whilst the Glasshouse (which is the size of ten tennis courts) is home to more than 5,000 tropical and tender plants. In 2017, a new Exotic Garden was opened to show how a tropical-style planting of palms, cannas and dahlias could be created in a UK climate. In spring 2018 Wisley opened its new Wisteria Walk, the longest in the country at 75 metres. After a full afternoon at leisure we will be transferred to our overnight hotel and our evening meal.

Sunday 15th August
After a leisurely breakfast, we make the very short journey to the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. There is so much to find, see and do from walking around the spectacular Rock Garden that mimics the world’s mountainous regions to climbing the Treetop Walkway 18 metres above the ground. The Temperate House is the world’s largest Victorian glasshouse and is home to
1,500 incredibly rare species of plants from around the globe whilst the Princess of Wales’ Conservatory is a glassy labyrinth with ten computer-controlled climate zones. After a full day at leisure we re-join the coach late afternoon so home to Newark for mid evening
