GARDEN enthusiasts from Hampshire are this month being invited to sign up for a coach trip organised by Andover Garden Centre.

Customers are being given the chance to visit Hidcote Manor Gardens in Gloucestershire on Wednesday 29 June accompanied by a member of staff from the garden centre.

Gary Cooper, manager of the garden centre said: “Hidcote Manor Gardens near Chipping Campden is one of England’s great gardens.

“Nestled in the Cotswolds with sweeping views across the Vale of Evesham it was created during the Arts and Crafts movement and became one of the most influential gardens of the 20th century.”

The coach will leave from Andover Garden Centre at 9.30am and will return at around 5.45pm. Gary added: “The price of the trip also includes afternoon tea on the return journey at our sister garden centre, Blooms Swindon Garden Centre at 4pm.

The coach will depart from Blooms Swindon Garden Centre at around 5pm and return to Andover Garden Centre at approximately 5.45pm. Tickets, which must be purchased in advance from the garden centre, cost £35 per person and include coach travel, entry to Hidcote Manor Gardens and afternoon tea.
