Events

Perennial’s history is rooted in the country houses and great estates of Britain and we’re delighted that our annual Special Events programme can continue due to their constant support, and the support of owners and Head Gardeners who care and maintain beautiful gardens around the UK.

Our garden tours over recent years have received some wonderful feedback from guests:

“Another memorable visit with thanks to Perennial. The Special Events get better and better! All the staff….were charming and helpful. Hard to believe [the garden] was in a city – such tranquillity! A most enthusiastic Head Gardener, outstanding [catering], the food was wonderful.” (The Bath Priory, May 2018)

“A delightfully friendly group – my first Perennial visit, so lovely to feel so included.” (Birtsmorton Court, June 2018)

“The four of us have visited many gardens over the years and rate this visit outstanding. From the welcome cup of coffee on arrival to the farewell on departure, the organisation was superb… couldn’t be bettered.” (Ozleworth Park, July 2017)

Our 2019 programme promises to be just as enjoyable, so we look forward to seeing you at an event or two!

Friends of Perennial enjoy priority booking for all our Special Events. Find out more here.
