Available in Stock
Illustrated with paintings and prints as well as Vivian Russell's outstanding photographs, this is a visually impressive introduction to the finest Baroque parks and gardens in Britain. Covering 2,000 acres and designed over the last 600 years, Hampton Court's Grade I listed grounds include miles of tree-lined avenues, a canal and even a 'Wilderness'. The book looks at each of the gardens in turn, exploring their history and the patrons, designers and gardeners involved in their creation and maintenance.
