Introducing RHS Garden Holidays

rhs-garden-holidays.jpg

Welcome to Royal Horticultural Society Garden Holidays

Millions of people love gardening and nearly everyone dreams of traveling. For that reason Collette Vacations has partnered with the renowned Royal Horticultural Society to create a collection of unique garden holidays. Now you can experience exclusive access to the world’s most extraordinary gardens with the thrill of exploring iconic destinations. Don’t miss out.

  • For all bookings, we’re providing one year complimentary membership to the Royal Horticultural Society
  • All tours are led by expert Collette tour guides, whilst certain departure dates will also have a specialist RHS tour leader for added horticultural depth.
  • All tours have a strong horticultural slant. This may mean they offer private entry to public gardens, visits to private gardens, or the chance to see plants in their natural habitat.
  • All tours are rich in cultural interest, so if by chance your traveling companion is slightly less horticulturally minded than you are, there will still be plenty for them to enjoy.
