All our Coach Trips depart from the Garden Centre, there are no pick ups on the way, so we get to the destination more quickly. You are welcome to leave your car in our car park for the day FREE!
Bookings are made on a first come, first served basis and seats on the coaches are not reserved. Payment for the majority of our coach trips needs to be made in full when you book - due to the nature of booking shows and events we cannot offer refunds (unless we have to cancel - a full refund will then be made with as much notice given as possible).
If you change your mind : Please let us know as soon as possible. If the trip is full with a waiting list, we may be able to re-sell your ticket & give you a refund. If this is not the case, unfortunately we will not be able to refund any monies paid.

Highclere Castle - The home of Downton Abbey
£55 per person / £49.50 for Garden Club Members
You've seen the movie, now visit the Abbey! Highclere Castle in Berkshire is now famous worldwide following the hugely successful ITV series Downton Abbey. The home of the Earl and Countess of Carnarvon, we visit in April where you can take a self guided tour of the house and grounds. Visit the White Garden, the Secret Garden, the Wood of Goodwill and enjoy the many well stocked borders.
Your ticket also includes entry to the Egyptian Exhibition which is in the basement of the main House. Enter into a celebration dedicated to the 5th Earl of Carnarvon who famously discovered the tomb of the Egyptian Boy Pharaoh Tutankhamun in 1922.
Raymond Blanc's 'Le Manoir Aux Quat'Saisons' in Oxfordshire
£279 per person / £251 for Garden Club Members
Due to demand, we are now planning a further trip to the world famous 'Le Manoir aux Quat Saisons'. Following our first very successful trip in July 2018, we have since returned twice in 2018 and now again this year. This exclusive trip visits the world famous 'Manoir Aux Quat'Saisons'. This venue, hotel and restaurant is run by renowned chef Raymond Blanc OBE, and our day will feature a guided spring walk around the extensive hotel grounds followed by a Champage and Canape reception and an all sumptuous four course Michelin starred lunch with all your wine/soft drinks included.
This is a special day out, and many of our customers have celebrated special occasions by joining us - or simply treated themselves!
Located in the Oxfordshire countryside just off the M40, the venue holds two Michelin Stars, with many of the extensive grounds given over to organic fruit and vegetable production - much of the produce
is used at the Hotel itself.
