The palaces and gardens of North India were built by the 16th and 17th-century Mughal emperors to house their great courts.
As well as visiting some of the major sites and gardens, the journey also takes in many of the less visited yet stunning gardens and palaces in the region, thanks to the connections of your tour leader, the distinguished designer John Brookes.

Highlights include Lodhi Gardens, Mehtab Bagh, Deeg, Amber Fort and Kumbhalgarh, not forgetting the stunning hotel palaces and the natural beauty of India itself.
