Kilver Court The visionary design influences of Mulberry founder Roger Saul can now be seen coming to fruition in his garden at Kilver Court gardens. His unique planting schemes using colour and texture are evident in his newly redesigned 100m colourist herbaceous border, formal parterre and subtropical island. This eclectic garden is also home to one of the largest sculptures in the world, a breath-taking 15-metre-high Victorian viaduct. Explore the garden nursery which is a treasure trove of garden gifts, plants and tools There is also a shopping outlet on site with café for light lunches, teas & coffees and a restaurant for lunchtime meals.

Hauser & Wirth Gallery There is an art gallery housed within the old farm buildings with a stunning garden designed by Piet Oudolf, also a shop attached to the gallery. We shall have a tour of the gallery and the gardens on arrival, hopefully not taking too long. We shall have tea in Bruton before our return journey to Gloucester.
