HOLIDAY HIGHLIGHTS

RHS Garden Hyde Hall   |   Roman Colchester   |   Beth Chatto Gardens   |   Green Island Gardens

 

DAY ONE – Arrival

We depart from your home and travel to East Anglia arriving at our hotel with time to relax before dinner this evening.

 

DAY TWO – Green Island Gardens

After a leisurely morning we have a drive to the north of Colchester and visit Green Island Gardens. This is a superbly designed garden in a 20-acre site with borders, water gardens, seaside garden, Japanese garden, gravel and extensive woodland gardens and more, all featuring unusual plants and flowers. The tearoom is a lovely place to end your visit and enjoy a cup of tea before we head back to our hotel in time to relax before dinner this evening.

 

DAY THREE – RHS Hyde Hall

Today we have a drive to the village of Rettendon, near Chelmsford. Here we visit the Royal Horticultural Society Garden at Hyde Hall. This 360-acre estate blends into the surrounding farmlands and is a garden to be enjoyed by all.

 

DAY FOUR – Colchester & Beth Chatto Gardens

For our final outing we make our way to historic Colchester for some free time and chance to obtain lunch. The oldest town in England boasts a wide “boulevard” as a main street, with many interesting pedestrian shopping malls and lanes with specialist shops. At one end of the street is beautiful Castle Park, complete with the largest Norman Keep ever constructed, riverside walks and pleasant gardens.

This afternoon we head for the Beth Chatto Gardens. Begun in 1960 from an overgrown wasteland it is now an informal garden harmonising with the surroundings.

 

DAY FIVE – Departure

After breakfast this morning we leave our hotel and make our journey home with comfort stops en route.
