Designed for garden lovers and lovers of flowers, this full-day tour of some of London's best-kept garden secrets goes beyond the usual tourist haunts of the capital.

Starting at Trafalgar Square at the entrance to St. Martin-in-the-Fields Church, peek into the grounds of the nearby St. Paul's Artist Church, designed by Indigo Jones. Behind the church, opposite the Covent Garden entrance, is a lovely rose garden. Next head towards the delightful Lincoln's Inn Fields, London's largest city square, built in the 17th century.

Adjacent is the John Soane Museum, home to many beautiful antiques, including some charming garden statuary. Walk through the square's bamboo garden to Temple Gardens, hidden amongst the Inns of Court.

Drive to the Embankment, crossing the River Thames to the London Garden Museum. Excellent displays and a lovely knot garden from the 1600s await, as does a relaxing café, where you can refresh yourself with a cup of tea or coffee.

The next garden on your tour is the famous Chelsea Physic Garden, established in 1673 and known for its apothecary plants and trees. One of their own gardener guides will walk you through the garden oasis, just a stone's throw from Sloane Square.

Go to the legendary Fortnum and Mason tea rooms for a traditional English High Tea in an atmosphere of authentic British charm. Finally, visit the Italian Water Gardens in Kensington Gardens, before a very special trip to Kensington Rooftop Gardens.
