Great Gardens of Yorkshire

Great Gardens of Yorkshire

What makes this garden tour worth a closer look is the inclusion of special visits to three former winners of the Christies/Historic Garden of the Year award. As the other properties have also been chosen because of their excellence, this 4 night York based tour makes a perfect pre tour for the Chelsea Flower Show (late May) or for the Hampton Court Flower Show (early July). It works just as well in reverse.  Highlights include;

  • A special tour of the stunning walled garden created by Piet Ouldorf at Scampston Hall
  • Fountain’s Abbey, Britain’s largest monastic ruin and most complete Cistercian abbey and the elegant Georgian Studley Royal Water Garden
  • The essence of Yorkshire captured in a beautiful garden setting at RHS Harlow Carr
  • The wonderful display of roses at Castle Howard
  • The award winning garden at privately owned Newby Hall
  • A special day at Harewood House, affectionately known as Yorkshire’s Treasure House
  • A Mad Alice walking tour of York
