Additional Tour Joining Points:

Those who have travelled with us before will have started from Romsey as, for 14 years, our tours were exclusive to members of one of Hampshire's Garden Centre chains.  Our tours still pick up in Romsey yet also at a range of convenient pick up points in the South, South East and South West.   One of the central joining points is Winchester. this delightful cathedral city is served well by South West Trains with a direct link from London. We will do our best to consider your joining requests, if they are not listed as standard pick up points.  Much depends on the route that the coach is taking to and from the destination and we will avoid too many pick ups as these are garden tours and we know that travelling around the country with multiple joining stops is not ideal and detracts from the very essence of the tour.

The itineraries are carefully designed to include something for everyone – private gardens and nurseries as well as some of the “must see” famous gardens.  Where possible we meet private garden owners and Head Gardeners who can share their horticultural experiences with us. Many garden visits end with a leisurely sit down and refreshments (often home-made) providing that perfect opportunity to reflect and relax.  For most tours there will be a horticultural tour leader as well as a knowledgeable Brookland Guide to look after you and numbers will be kept low to enhance your enjoyment and experience.

"Hi team, we would like to thank for arranging a near perfect break with friendly staff, clean quiet rooms, a cosy restaurant serving simple well prepared food locally sourced. The mix of private gardens we found a delight, those on a more modest scale contrasting with the others unconstrained by budget. Sub tropical Herm, rugged Sark, such a contrast. Gill was the most informative guide we have encountered. Her close ties to all aspects of island life - she seemed to know everyone and everything - making us feel at home. Dear Andy, every ready with amusing anecdotes, flower shirts and immense horticultural knowledge. All told, a professionally planned and faultlessly operated trip. Our sincere thanks.

"Hi Joanne, yet another well structured and professionally led tour. Shrewsbury and Ludlow were particularly lovely, the Albright Hussey hotel was perfectly located with great service and an intimate atmosphere. Once again my sincere thanks for a restorative break. Best Wishes Richard
