Gourmet Garden Trails of England

In August 2016, Go To Places secured a £240,000 grant from the national £40 million Discover England Fund to deliver the exciting Gardens and Gourmet project in partnership with five regions; Kent, Hertfordshire, Essex, Cheshire and Peak District & Derbyshire.

The innovative pilot project inspired international visitors in London to experience each regions’ outstanding gardens and superb local restaurants, cafes, vineyards and breweries using new technology, insider tips and a bookable visitor pass. Go To Places directed and project managed the entire bid, creating a compelling campaign demonstrating the essential digital innovation and cross-region partnership working the Government was seeking.

After a lengthy submissions process in 2017 for a second round of Discover England Fund support, Go To Places officially secured £1 million of Government funding to expand the Gardens and Gourmet Trails project in February 2018.

Working closely with the travel trade, the Gourmet Garden Trails of England builds on the pilot project work to create new bookable itineraries that package beautiful accommodation, artisanal food and drink locations, courses, winery and brewery tours, and stunning English gardens for visitors from Germany and The Netherlands.
