Spring Garden Tour and Afternoon Tea – Tuesday 24th April

Spring-garden-tour-2

– NOW FULLY BOOKED –

Possibly the most lovely and uplifting event of our 2018 calendar, our Spring Garden Tour is a wonderful way to welcome in spring. The Bowcliffe garden tours are always extremely popular, and with good reason. The talented gardening team work tirelessly day in, day out to make sure Bowcliffe looks magnificent, whatever the season. But who doesn’t have a soft spot for spring?

What: Spring Garden Tour and Afternoon Tea

When: 2 pm, Tuesday 24th April, The Potting Shed

Cost: £32.50 per person NOW FULLY BOOKED

Your tour will begin in the pretty Potting Shed, where you’ll be met by our Deputy Head Gardener, Natalie, who will lead you a merry horticultural dance down our Bridal Borders to experience the leafy seclusion of Chapel Walk, before moving to the imposing, sweeping beds which run alongside the Blackburn Wing. No visit to Bowcliffe Hall would be complete without taking in the main flower beds that will be brimming with spring colour.

During your tour, Natalie will give a detailed account of the Bowcliffe garden history, creation and current programme of evolution. As a final flourish, you will get a sneak peek in the Potting Shed which supplies Bowcliffe’s Executive Chef with the freshest of fresh culinary delights.

After the tour is over, you’ll make your way to the stunning Ballroom to enjoy an indulgent Afternoon Tea, served with a delicious glass of prosecco.
