This interesting new tour includes a visit to the famous ecological gardens of Beth Chatto OBE, who was one of the most influential gardeners in the country until her death in 2018.
We also spend a day at the RHS Hyde Hall Flower Show, where we enjoy the displays and assorted garden stands of specialist nurseries and plant growers, many of whom exhibit at the Chelsea and Hampton Court Flower Shows.
Wednesday: We travel to Essex in time for our afternoon guided tour of the Beth Chatto Gardens, followed by free time to see the garden at leisure before we continue on to the hotel.
Thursday: After breakfast we travel to RHS Hyde Hall where we spend the day enjoying the flower show before we return to the hotel.
Friday: This morning we leave the hotel and head home to Derbyshire with a stop at Bury St Edmunds for lunch.
We will be staying at the Crowne Plaza Resort Hotel, a contemporary, modern hotel with a lakeside setting, near to Colchester. The hotel is situated in beautiful parkland with two golf courses, a health spa and a leisure club with indoor swimming pool and gym.
All the comfortably furnished rooms are en-suite and have tea/coffee making facilities.
