The CHS Tours to England are always popular and often a trip of a lifetime. The 2013 tour is to the Heart of England & Hampton Court Palace Flower Show. The tour is planned for a leisurely pace with three to five night stays.  The itinerary is just being finalised and is looking a stunner, packed with inspirational gardens and everything you would expect to see in the Heart of England. I have heard so much about the Hampton Court Flower Show – so let us explore it together.  I welcome you to join me on this friendly, well planned tour where you will be travelling with like minded people.

To register your interest in the above tours email: or phone (03) 366 6937.

Members on the World of Wearable Arts Wellington tour were most impressed with the show. I am planning the 2013 tour for September.  If you are interested please contact the office and I can add your name to the list.

Take a peek at the images of the Experience the Chathams tour.  We certainly experienced the climate extremes!  Along with unique flora, fauna and Island hospitality. Visit our website for more images from all our tours this year.

Thank you for supporting the 2012 tours, I look forward to presenting next years programme to you all.

Seasons Greetings.
