Spanning Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk, the four-day Private Gardens of East Anglia trip also features RHS Council Member Lady Xa Tollemache’s Helmingham Hall, Wyken Hall vineyards and gardens, Raveningham Hall owned by RHS President Sir Nicholas Bacon Bt and East Ruston Old Vicarage, The Place For Plants at East Bergholt Place and Marks Hall Gardens and Arboretum. Three nights from £495pp half board at Dunston Hall, Norfolk, including coach travel departing Victoria 2 May and 13 September 2017.
