We have put together some fantastic Special Events for you to explore some of the best gardens in the country.

Perennial’s history is rooted in the country houses and great estates of Britain and we’re delighted with the support that these grand, and most noble, of residences continue to give us. We hope you enjoy browsing the selection and that you find something of interest to look forward to this year.
