Brogdale offers the unique opportunity to picnic under the cherry blossom as well and enjoy Japanese experiences.
Book your picnic and as a Hanami visitor, you will be treated to a Japanese exhibition of traditional artefacts where you can learn about Japanese culture, traditions and the Hanami festival.
Set your taste buds off with samples of Japanese food & snacks, have a go at origami and calligraphy and try on a Japanese kimono.
Our expert guides will then lead you on a special guided tour of the blossoming orchards where you can see the stunning beautiful blossom, discover the history of Hanami and The National Fruit Collection for yourself.
Once the tour has finished you can sit down and enjoy your picnic (bring your own picnic) under the beautiful blossoming cherry trees or enjoy the colours and fragrance of the blossom.
