Chatsworth gardens

Exclusive Chatsworth experience

Enjoy a tour of the famous gardens

Sorry, this competition is now closed.

On 18 May 2012, we gave four AA Rewards members, plus a guest, the chance to take part in an exclusive money-can’t-buy experience – being shown around the glorious Chatsworth garden by Head Gardener Steve Porter.

Here’s what a few of our winning members had to say about their experience:

Steve Porter

Christine and Albert

Albert and I would like to thank you for the memorable day organised by the AA to Chatsworth House. The tour of the house was lovely, but what made it extra-special was the private tour with Steve, the head gardener, going behind the scenes to places not normally accessed by the general public. To end the perfect day we enjoyed afternoon tea in the Grosvenor suite. The whole day was a wonderful experience and was very much appreciated.

Eric and Ann

Just a line to say thanks for a great day, and for looking after us so well – and the goody bag was a nice surprise.
