Explore English Homes and Gardens with Historic Annapolis

Historic Annapolis is pleased to announce that we have partnered with travel company Wild Blue Yonder to offer a seven night trip to explore Southeast England.


Next May, join a group of like-minded travelers to explore the castles, estates and gardens in the Southeast of England. We’ll be touring several National Trust sites, as well as other famed gardens and historic places. Our base will be the popular Georgian spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells in Kent. It’s been attracting visitors for over 400 years, ever since a mineral water spring was discovered here, bringing royal visitors looking for eternal health.

Physical Requirements for This Trip

Although this trip is not strenuous, you will be walking on uneven pavement, rough garden paths and grassy hills. None of the manor houses we visit have lifts; you must be able to climb several flights of stairs, and walk at least a mile on hilly ground without a rest.
