Join us for one of our evening walking tours of the beautiful Hampton Court Palace gardens that run alongside the river Thames.

They feature sparkling fountains and glorious displays of over 200,000 flowering bulbs. The walking tour will take members through the Rose Garden, Wilderness, into the formal East Front gardens, out onto Barge Walk and finishes outside the palace façade.

It’s time to get those sensible shoes on (and pack that umbrella, just in case).
