Each year, Mary Bligh arranges a residential tour, usually in May, for 25 - 30 people. The tours alternate between the UK and Europe, and the UK tours also alternate between north and south.

A member writes: In 2017, Mary led a group of members to Yorkshire, based in Harrogate.  We saw some magnificent houses and gardens including Harewood House and Newby Hall as well as Fountains Abbey and Harrogate itself. This year Mary Bligh is taking a group to Northern Italy based in Vicenza and Ferrara from 7th to 12th May.  Apart from those two cities we will also visit Ravenna and Bologna.
