Romsey and The Sir Harold Hillier Gardens
Sunday 1st September 2019
£22.00 All seats
We travel to the attractive town of Romsey, described as the ‘jewel in the crown of Hampshire’. There will be time to explore the town, perhaps visiting the Abbey, where Lord Louis Mountbatten is buried or King John’s House, home to Romsey Museum. There are plenty of cafes, restaurants and pubs in which to find lunch and today The Hampshire Farmers’ Market is in town. You may choose to spend the day in Romsey or rejoin the coach for the short journey to the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens, established in 1953 and home to a remarkable collection of trees, shrubs and plants. The iconic Centenary Border is the longest double herbaceous border in the UK and is a kaleidoscope of colour, stunning from May through to October. Also enjoy the tranquility of the pond, banked by lush foliage and giant Gunnera. The additional cost for visiting the gardens is £9.00 per person. The gardens offer a mobility scooter hire service, but this must be booked in advance on 01794 369318.
