Join Head Gardener James Neal for an intimate behind-the-scenes tour of the beautiful gardens of Michelham Priory.

This fascinating tour starts at 11am and finishes at 1pm, and includes a guided walk around the gardens, with a focus on the stunning dahlias which delight visitors year in, year out.

James, who has worked and lived at the Priory for seven years, has extensive knowledge of the plants that grow on-site and is more than happy to answer your questions and provide advice for your own gardening activities. With a maximum group size of 15 people, you’ll have ample opportunity to chat with James.

After a pleasant stroll around the gardens, you’ll head to the café for a mouth-watering slice of homemade cake and a cup of tea.
