Garden Holidays in the UK Proving to Be a Popular Holiday Alternative

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 13, 2010) - Given the recent economic climate in the UK, many families have opted for local UK holidays instead of international trips.

Themed holidays have proven very popular, giving travellers the ability to tailor itineraries based on their individual preferences. Gardening and horticultural enthusiasts, in particular, are spoilt for choice with Saga Travel.

Giving travellers the opportunity to experience some of the world's most unique landscapes, eco-systems and premier gardens on their doorstep and beyond, Saga's garden holidays package is just what green fingers across the UK have been waiting for.

Saga's garden holidays in the UK and abroad focus on taking guests to the best horticultural locations. From quaint English country gardens to the formal sculptured gardens of Europe and the exotic indigenous flora of South Africa, these packages provide an imaginative themed alternative to traditional holidays.

A few of the excursions included as standard on European tours include visiting the Alhambra Palace of Granada and Croatia's Ancient Gardens. The spectacular Moorish Palace and gardens in Granada were built during the 14th century and are situated on the south-eastern border of the Andalusian province.

In Croatia, guests will also be able to experience the historic gardens of Dubrovnik. As one of the oldest cities in the Mediterranean, Dubrovnik has a wide range of horticultural sites for visitors to enjoy. On the Dubrovnik Riviera, the two historic cloisters' gardens of Villa Sorkevic and Villa Guceti are only a few of the gardens included in the itinerary.

One of the most impressive biospheres on the planet is on display at the southern tip of Africa.
