An event no gardener will want to miss
Held at the height of the summer, against the backdrop of one of the great Royal Palaces, the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show - with its fabulous show gardens, floral marquees, gift and gadgets - is packed with ideas and inspiration.
Single rooms are available for a supplement
Leaving the local area in the morning we'll head to the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show for the highlight of the weekend. Arriving for a show entrance time of 3pm, spend the afternoon exploring the 50 or so show gardens, including water gardens - a category unique to Hampton Court. Seek the advice of celebrity experts, watch demonstrations and pick up a wealth of traditional, practical and innovative ideas from top garden designers.
After your explorations, relax by the bandstand and enjoy the music, sit by the long water or treat yourself to a glass of champagne. However you choose to spend your time you're sure to have a really memorable visit, and head to our hotel full of ideas and enthusiasm for your own garden.
Enjoy breakfast before we check out and travel to the tranquil RHS Gardens at Wisley, set in 240 acres and developed over 100 years. Admire the dazzling rhododendrons, irises and peonies that signal summer has arrived; wander through the alpine meadow and rock garden; and don't miss the cathedral-like Glasshouse, showcasing plants from around the world.
Take the chance to refuel at the Conservatory Dining Room or Orchard Cafe before we re-board the coach in the mid afternoon, arriving back in the local area by mid-to-late evening.
