Price per person:
£25 per person per night single supplement.
The ultimate gardener's day out! The first new RHS flower show in over a decade will take place, against the background of Capability Brown's remarkable landscapes, in the magnificent grounds of Chatsworth House. Don't miss your chance to be one of the first to visit the must-do horticultural event of 2017.
Day 1 After a comfort stop en route, we have a leisurely lunch stop at Litchfield in Staffordshire where you will find the famous cathedral with three spires. We arrive at our hotel with time to unwind before our evening meal.
Day 2 Today is the day we go to The RHS Chatsworth Flower Show which promises to be a spectacular and fascinating addition to the horticultural calendar. Laid out to maximize the magnificent views and grounds of its unique venue, and with specially designed bridges across the River Derwent linking different sites, the show aims to champion 'the horticultural innovation of today and the future'. The highlight of the show will surely be the re-creation of Sir Joseph Paxton's magnificent Great Conservatory at Chatsworth. The original took four years to build and was the largest glass building in England until the construction of the ill-fated Crystal Palace in London, but this new version will house floral displays and miniature Mediterranean and tropical habitats. Explore the show gardens and see the entries to the competition focused on the RHS's new science strategy (Gardening in a Changing World). Shop for the latest gardening gadgets and accessories, and discover the latest trends and innovation in the world of garden design.
Day 3 After breakfast we make our way home. On our way back we visit Britain's largest and most spectacular garden centre, Bridgemere Nursery & Garden World which lies on the beautiful borders of Cheshire, Staffordshire and Shropshire. With a nursery growing nearly a million plants a year and six acres of themed, award winning show gardens.
