Gardens for the summer holidays
The National Garden Scheme has gardens across England and Wales and what better time to explore them – and to get your children and grandchildren engaged with the magic of gardens – than in the summer holidays?
From small village plots to rolling acres there is something to delight and inspire everyone. And with tea and cake on offer too, visiting a garden can make a perfect visit this summer.
