We're going to England in September 2018 and focusing on both textiles and English gardens. The tour begins and ends in London. In London we will bypass the well known museums and monuments, which many of you may have already visited. Instead, we will see lesser visited sites. Of course, at the top of the textile list is a guided visit to the Victorian and Albert Museum, which houses a treasure-trove of textile treats. Also on the itinereary will be a visit to the William Morris Gallery, where the English Arts and Crafts movement began.

Our coach will take us south, into Kent, for visits to the gardens at Sissinghurst and Great Dixter, as well as Hever Castle, the birthplace of Anne Boleyn.

Next we drive northwest into the Cotswolds to explore a few charming villages, as well as Hidcote Garden. We continue to nearby Bath to see the Roman Baths, the Bath Fashion Museum and the American Museum, which features not only American crafts, but also a wonderful collection of quilts.

By coach, after a visit to Stourhead Gardens, we return to London for another free day. We've put several free days or half days into the itinerary in London. There is much to see and we think each of you will have your own agenda, be it Westminster Cathedral, another visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum, shopping at Harrods, going to the theater, etc. We'll let you plan your own time.

We have given careful thought and attention to details for the planned visits and activities on this year's itinerary. Since the first tour in 1995, we have worked diligently to offer you the best possible experience. Jeanne Mills and her daughter Bonnie Bennett are seasoned travelers, who love new adventures. Join us for an exciting fun-filloed trip.

Come and be inspired as you travel with friends, quilters and others, who love travel adventures and want to learn about textiles and gardens of England.
