Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This elegant book presents one hundred of the most beautiful historic gardens in England. The gardens range from the neoclassical paradise of Stourhead to the subtropical splendour of Tresco Abbey and the soothing calm of the White Garden at Sissinghurst, all photographed in stunning color by leading British garden photographers. Each garden is presented at its most glorious moment-- whether at twilight or midday, in autumn, or at the height of summer.

English Heritage has spent over ten years identifying and grading the fabulous wealth of parks and gardens throughout England on the basis of their historical significance, state of preservation and level of general interest. This information is compiled in the English Heritage Parks and Gardens Register, from which the respected horticultural author Patrick Taylor has selected one hundred favorites. In his lively and informative style, he reveals the historic background to each garden and discusses the modern-day plantings.

A comprehensive index, county map, and opening times for each garden offer information for the traveler. Lush, full-color photographs capture the essence of each garden for an inspiring tour of the best of a grand gardening tradition.

Synopsis:

The most beautiful and historic British gardens in glowing color photographs.
