Garden Week tour of K&Q is April 26

Belle Vue

On Friday, April 26, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Garden Club of the Middle Peninsula will offer a tour of four homes, all open for the first time during Historic Garden Week. In addition, three historic churches and one museum will be open for visitors.

Traveling the winding roads of the lower King and Queen area through a richly forested landscape interspersed with rivers and streams, this house and garden tour draws visitors off the beaten path to a county.

To celebrate the Garden Club of Virginia’s 80th Anniversary of Historic Garden Week, eight period floral arrangements will be on special display throughout the tour.

Tickets for the entire tour are $30, and $15 for a single home. Children 12 and older pay full price, ages 6-11 half price, ages 5 and under are admitted free. Tickets may be purchased on the tour day at any of the five homes. Children under 17 must be accompanied by an adult.

Tickets are available until April 23 in West Point at Divin’ Off the Dock; in Urbanna at R.S. Bristow Store and Cyndy’s Bynn; in Locust Hill at River Birch Gifts; and in Tappahannock at Lowery’s and Riverside Accents and Gifts. Tickets also may be purchased online at

Box lunches are available for $12 at Shackelfords Chapel United Methodist Church from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. They must be preordered by April 19.  For information, call (804) 785-6900.
