Drawing on diaries and sketchbooks kept by visitors over three centuries, this book presents the histories of the 16 finest parks and gardens in Wales. An examination of travel conditions in the age of the stagecoach precedes a survey of changing horticultural fashions from the Renaissance to the end of the Romantic era. More than 200 period paintings, drawings and engravings are shown with photographs of the gardens today.
