secret garden tea tours
small group tours with an emphasis on afternoon tea
We’ll discover the most charming and romantic areas of the country, tour beautiful castles and gardens, see English china being made right in the factories and shop china outlets, antique shops and famous flea markets, all while enjoying afternoon tea each day. We’ll even soak in the waters at a luxurious modern spa in the ancient city of Bath.
The tour will be a uniquely casual, family-style experience as we travel together as a small group on private minbusses. Once in London, we'll travel like locals with London Transport passes for the Tube and city busses. We will explore each city on our itinerary as fully as possible, by utilizing hop-on busses and visiting the top attractions with plenty of time for shopping and exploring on your own too.
The 4-Star hotels and inns we select are chosen for their charm, amenities, and location, so you can easily explore on your own in the evenings, or stroll to a nearby restaurant for dinner.
Our Afternoon Tea each day will vary from charming owner-operated tea rooms, to famous hotels and department stores, each offering their own special take on the classic English tea experience.
