Garden Tours
The Secret Gardens of the Kent Weald
The Kent Weald - Where London ends and the rest of England begins. The Garden of England
Available April to October

The perfect way to spend a day, get away from the city and explore the Beautiful Kentish Weald through the eyes of some of the local gardeners. An opportunity to chat to a gardener and enjoy lunch or afternoon tea at a traditional Wealden cottage. Sue Eldridge will act as your companion and guide and pass on to you her love of the English countryside and the pleasures of gardening on an intimate scale.

A different world just 30 minutes from London by train, tours start at Sevenoaks Station and we take the slow route to the destination gardens enjoying spectacular views over ancient wooded areas. Sue will select the best gardens for the day from a large portfolio of small local gardens but if you have any special interests in garden design or planting styles please let us know as soon as possible.

"As every gardener knows 'there is never the wrong weather, only the wrong clothes!'
We never cancel, just put on another jumper or waterproof coat!"
