Next September, join P&P and a group of like-minded travelers in exploring the castles, estates, and gardens in the Southeast of England. We’ll be touring famed gardens and historic towns, as well as several sites overseen by the National Trust, which is a charitable organization with a mission to protect many of Britain’s most culturally and historically important landmarks. Our base will be the popular Georgian spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells in Kent, which has been an attraction for visitors since a mineral water spring was discovered here more than 400 years ago, bringing royal visitors looking for eternal health.
