The Most Glorious Prospect by Bettina Harden
Reveals the history of garden visiting in Wales between the years 1639-1900 – a bygone era of garden visiting brought to life using travellers’ diaries, letters and experiences. Bettina Harden documents the historic gardens of Wales as experienced by contemporary travellers in a book that is endlessly fascinating, intricately detailed and delightfully humorous. This is an authoritative insight into how the great gardens were first made accessible to the polite world, before being opened up to a wider middle-class audience.
