Days out


Logo GentianOne of the benefits of being a Friend is the programme of coach trips to visit venues in England and Wales.
The first Friends coach trip took place in September 1989 when spare places were offered for the University's Amateur Gardeners Holiday, including visits to Arley Hall, Bodnant and Ness Botanic Gardens.
The current programme of coach trips started in 1992.  A trio of Friends - Brenda Marshall, Wendy Jones and Judith Wheat - arrange a programme of garden visits for you to enjoy each year.
We hope you will find excursions that inspire you to come along!
