Houses & Gardens
Spanning visits to some of the finest houses and estates across the UK and Ireland, and in Europe, our tours offer a chance to explore the history – public and private – of the residences we visit. We will enjoy private access to many of these sites, accompanied by expert Tour Directors to help illuminate our visits.
As well as exploring the architectural and artistic treasures of the houses, villas and palaces we visit, we often also explore the gardens surrounding these properties. The elaborately designed fountains and flowerbeds of these residences were once powerful status symbols, indicating not just the availability of private land to be used for purposes other than the production of food, but also of labour to handle their upkeep. Today, these stately gardens are living works of art in their own right.
