L and L Garden Tours

Do you savor beautiful surroundings, meeting local people, exploring their customs and a relaxing pace?

You don’t have to be a gardener to enjoy our tours.  Relish the delight of an English garden.

Magnificent Garden Tours in the British Isles

We design and host one of a kind garden tours mainly to England and the British Isles. We specially select private homes and visit 3-4 a day. Imagine meeting the gardeners themselves and browsing their magnificent gardens. Follow the tour with scrumptious cakes (picture the British Baking Show) and tea or delightful Elderflower water.

We travel by region and also choose which public gardens in the area we feel will be most interesting. Our tours are completely private so we can stop when we wish to visit a historic site, a coastal beach or do some quick shopping in a lovely village.

Sometimes we add tours to other countries. Be sure to check out our Tours page.

Please check back with us in early April for more details on our upcoming & future tours.

As you know, we work with private homeowners by invitation to visit their gardens. To respect their comfort in allowing our group to visit their homes, we waited until the timing was right to approach gardeners for our visit. We are now in contact with our local gardeners and working as quickly as possible to put together our curated itineraries. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
