Gourmet Garden Trails

What is Gourmet Garden Trails?

Gourmet Garden Trails (GGT) is a new tourism product that allows the Travel Trade and Fully Independent Travellers (FITs) to gain inspiration, browse and plan their own bespoke gardens & gourmet themed itineraries. Taking in everything from accommodation, cookery courses, winery and brewery tours, to visits of English gardens, it gives visitors a real taste of England at their fingertips.

Gourmet Garden Trails is a Discover England funded project led by Go To Places and incorporates five regional partners; Cheshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Kent and the Peak District and Derbyshire.

Who is it aimed at?

Primarily, Gourmet Garden Trails is targeted toward the Dutch and German special interest markets, catering for those who like the outdoors and not only sampling and learning about the finest local cuisine but creating it too. Aimed at people who travel for experiences, GGT is not restricted to a certain age group.

Why should your local business get involved?

Any business that offers an outstanding garden, gourmet or unique accommodation experience in Kent (or one of our partner regions above) can get involved in Gourmet Garden Trails. The product also highlights unique experiences and events that come under the gardens or gourmet theme, ranging from brewery tours to foraging, and open gardens to food festivals.
