The tour starts in the Midlands, then we travel through England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland, discovering spectacular and iconic landscapes; perfect beaches, dramatic hills, peaceful wood and precious wildlife reserves. Explore breathtaking and historic properties--country houses, castles, cottages, quirky follies and even strange cave houses. Many of them tell fascinating stories and contain remarkable treatures. From little walled gardens to painstakingly perfect topiary to riotously delightful cottage gardens, all sorts of beautiful gardens and grand masterpieces are discovered. And finally, our most ancient landmarks are visited, including prehistoric standing stones, Saxon burial mounds and 1000-year-old trees.
