2 day tour
From £67 per person - minimum 20 passengers

The highly anticipated RHS Bridgewater opens to the public next year. The largest current garden project in Europe, this once in a generation opening sees the Royal Horticultural Society take inspiration from the heritage of the site and transform it into a world-class garden. RHS Bridgewater was once home to Worsley New Hall, a Victorian Mansion surrounded by formal gardens and Woodlands. The Hall became a Red Cross Hospital during the First World war , and then sadly fell into decline. The RHS took over in 2017 and the tranformation is underway to create a world-class garden and a local community champion. We also visit hidden Salford gem, Ordsall Hall, for a guided tour and refreshments.

Suggested Itinerary

Sunday

Ordsall Hall and travel to your hotel.

On Sunday afternoon we travel to our hotel in Worsley, located near to shopping mecca The Trafford Centre, and enjoy a buffet dinner. On the way we call into neighbouring Ordsall Hall for a guided tour and refreshments. The hall has a long and interesting history with many different uses since it was first mentioned in records in 1177! You may also meet a spooky inhabitant or two!

Monday

RHS Bridgewater and return home.

This morning we enjoy a full English breakfast before departing the hotel. We travel to the highly anticipated RHS Bridgewater where we explore the Tom Stuart-Smith created garden, and Harris Bug Studio Kitchen garden. We will wander through woodlands and take in the views of the historic lake. Cross the bridge in the Chinese stream-side garden and explore the Weston Walled Garden. We will enjoy a guided garden tour from a RHS volunteer.  Greatdays can suggest lunch stops depending on your route home.
