Choose your own secret garden, invite your favourite celebrity
Nobody knows English country gardens like the Gala team. We offer enchanted kingdoms across the UK – including Chelsea Physic Garden, London Garden Museum, Kew Gardens, Wisley Gardens, Hampton Court Palace Gardens and Kyoto Garden – but one of our most popular choices is 16th century Wollerton Old Hall in Shropshire. Welcome your intimate group, slow the pace and let stresses melt away in this fairytale location, exploring four acres of inspiring garden design blooming with salvias, clematis and roses.
Of course, many of your clients may also be keen hands-on gardeners, and that’s where Gala’s unbeatable celebrity roster comes into its own. We’re proud to boast some of the UK’s most popular TV gardeners on our books, from national treasure Chris Beardshaw (resident expert on BBC Radio 4 Gardeners’ Question Time) to household names including Joe Swift, Rachel De Thame, Charlie Dimmock and Frances Tophill. Whoever you choose, settle in over lunch for an illuminating talk combining stories from your celebrity guest’s career with practical advice you’ll take home with you.
