What's new at our destinations?

RHS Hilltop – The Home of Gardening Science is now open at RHS Wisley! Watch live horticultural experiments in action, enjoy fresh garden produce in the café or sip a drink on the panoramic Sky Terrace! Visit during our 4* Southern Shores & Gardens tour this September, staying at The Solent Hotel and Spa with its brand new Meadow Bar that backs on to woodland and serves great cocktails!

For the first time ever RHS Chelsea Flower Show will be held in autumn and BBC Gardeners’ World Live will be held outside! These two legendary shows are mixing it up in 2021 and this may be your only chance to see them in this format! Don’t miss Chelsea in its 108th year or Gardeners’ World with its new 'My Gardeners’ World Stage' and also featuring the BBC Good Food Market!

Have you seen the awesome new (free!) outdoor adventure play at Sandringham? After re-opening in Spring ’21 it now features a 26ft Water Tower, high-level walkways, new seating areas, footpaths & planting! The space is incredibly creative, adventurous and blends in seamlessly with the shady woodland surroundings.

Next week sees the opening of a special summer sculpture exhibition at the Grade I listed Leonardslee Lakes and Gardens. Surrey Sculpture Society has positioned over 80 diverse sculptures within this stunning setting, which are available to view until 5 September only! See it this August during our 4* seafront stay in Brighton where we’ve also included a heritage train ride on the famous Bluebell Line.

A special exhibition has opened at Windsor Castle to celebrate the remarkable life of HRH Prince Philip. The celebration features over 100 objects from his early life in the navy, through to his passion for conservation and his unparalleled support for the sovereign. Entry is included within standard Castle admission but the display is here for a limited time only, make sure you see it during our fare only trip to Windsor this summer! Oh, and whilst you’re there don’t forget to check out the new Undercroft Café at Windsor Castle – it’s one of the oldest surviving spaces in the 1000-year-old fortress and serves ice cream fresh from the Jersey herd at the Royal Farms, Windsor.

Visit somewhere new this summer!
