London (PRWEB) June 23, 2005 - Check-
out the top gardens in Britain and Ireland on Armchair Travel's new online directory: Gardens-Guide.com - http://www.gardens-guide.com
Armchair Travel have selected 450 of the best gardens in the UK and Ireland, and have compiled a comprehensive website telling visitors everything they need to know about each garden to ensure an enjoyable visit. For the first time, the history of the garden, and the house associated with it, are given, along with a high-quality picture of the garden.
A very detailed description of the garden, with special or unusual features highlighted, is provided, along with county and district maps and even recommendations as to where to stay, or have a meal nearby, and the best time of the year to visit each garden. William Beckett, Managing Director of Amrchair Travel, commented, "The information has proved so useful that many garden owners have told us that they use our website to plan visits to other great gardens around the country".
Armchair Travel have also provided 360-degree panoramic views of some especially interesting gardens all over the country from the late Queen Mother's estate at the Castle of Mey to Powerscourt in Ireland and Wakehurst Place in Sussex, to name but a few. A specially commissioned History of Gardening by Candida Lycett-Green, the well-known gardening writer, complements the website and there are two-way links to Crocus, the leading garden plants and supplies company.
Also included on the website are editorials, an events calendar, a community bulletin board, virtual tours listings, and extensive search facilities. Gardens are arranged in several ways: alphabetically, by county, by regional maps, and directly via our keyword search facility.
Gardens-guide.com provides more information and pictures on the leading gardens in Britain and Ireland, including over 80 top gardens of the National Trust, than any other website or book publication and is the first port-of-call for serious garden visitors in the UK.
