House & Garden tours

From great historical gardens to the private oases of garden designers and homeowners, our house and garden tours offer an escape from the urban environment. The focus spans classical forms of domestic architecture, where country houses, villas and private gardens act as places of refuge, freedom and self-expression, to brilliant modern public spaces, designed to keep the preoccupations of the city at a distance.

We offer the chance to explore every aspect of the garden and its environs, from the historical importance of the great Renaissance creations in Italy and France to the cultural traditions of Japan’s exquisite temple gardens; from the horticultural skill and naturalistic plant designs of Piet Oudolf in the Netherlands, to the wild flora of Portugal and the lemon groves of the Amalfi Coast. Privileged access is a feature, with contributions from garden designers, homeowners and head gardeners, as well as visits to inspirational Royal Horticultural Society Flower shows.
