Lullingstone’s World Garden, is a globally renowned collection of plants, trees and flowers from countries around the world, collected and curated by Tom Hart-Dyke, whose family have lived in Lullingstone Castle since the 15th century.

We are privileged to have exclusive access to the World Garden and the Castle grounds  on a day when the public is not admitted.

The day will start at 10:00 with an introduction and guided tour of the World Garden hosted by Tom Hart-Dyke, the owner and curator.

This will be followed by photography in the garden and grounds until 12:30 when we will break for lunch. Part of the collection is housed in greenhouses so we will still be able to photograph even if the weather is wet.

After lunch, there will be further photography opportunities and we will leave after a wrap up at 15:00


Professional Photographer, Paul Burgess ARPS, will be on hand throughout the day to coach you on techniques and advise on some of the best views to photograph


Opportunities during the day for:

  • Garden photography

  • Closeup flower photography, both in and out doors

  • Landscape photography

    • Long exposures

    • Woodlands

    • River bank

    • The lake

    • The Church

The images on this page were taken in early April, well before the garden and grounds were at their best.

The cost of the workshop is £69.00 including a picnic lunch and admission to the Castle
