2016 is going to be a great year for celebrating English gardens.
Once again we are offering a twin destination package to visit two of Hertfordshire’s loveliest gardens. Bring your group for a wonderful day filled with fragrance and colour. Visit the Royal National Rose Society Gardens, near St Albans and the delightful 28 acre formal gardens of Knebworth House.
Start your day at the delightful Royal National Rose Society Gardens of the Rose near historic St Albans. and barely five minutes from Junction 21a of the M25 and or Junction 6 of the M1. These showpiece gardens of the Royal National Rose Society are a magnet for anyone with a passion for Roses. It is a great place to get ideas for how and where to plant roses in your own garden or to simply spend a few hours in a uniquely relaxing, reflective and inspiring environment.
Rejoin your coach for the short onward journey to the spectacular formal Gardens of Knebworth House. Home to the Lytton family for over 500 years, the historic Gardens were re-designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens to create a series of ‘Garden-rooms’ which are delightful to explore. Enjoy the colourful formal Rose Gardens and herbaceous borders, and discover the herb Garden designed for Knebworth by Gertrude Jekyll. There is also a Walled Vegetable Garden and a Wilderness Garden to explore.
There are a number of additional options for the group organiser to consider to tailor the perfect day. Morning coffee, lunch and afternoon tea may be arranged, and a group can also have a guided tour of Knebworth House.
Cost per person £14.50 (minimum of 25 per group) £15.50 if you would like a guided tour of the Rose Gardens. All refreshments at both venues are extra. Admission to Knebworth House is extra.
