Of special interest to:
Embroiderers - The New Elizabethan Embroideries display eight years work by 500 British and American stitchers producing the splendid modern centrepiece of a collection of historic textiles. The New Elizabethan Embroideries are well-known to this interest group through extensive coverage in specialist magazines. (Tours primarily interested in the embroideries should check that they will be on display on the chosen date, as they are occasionally 'rested' to maintain their good condition).
Gardeners - The lovely gardens include herbaceous borders, an knot garden with traditional herbs, an orchard underplanted with thousands of daffodils, lawns, yew hedges and topiary. Herbs and unusual perennials are sold in the courtyard from Easter to September.
Herb enthusiasts - Housing the headquarters of the National Society of Herbs, the Sulgrave gardens host the National Herb Garden and their Chelsea prize winning exhibit.
