LONDON COUNTRY HOUSES: THEIR FAMILIES AND THEIR ARCHITECTS

Fine architecture and fascinating families in the great residences of what is still countryside in London today, coupled with the splendid survival of the designers’ best work in the heart of London.


ROYALTY, PARKLAND AND GARDENS - LECTURE

Kew Palace is a royal country house, or rather it is the one survivor of a series of royal residences in the Richmond Old Deer Park and at Kew, where in the 1730s Frederick, Prince of Wales, and Princess Augusta settled. When widowed in 1751 Augusta developed the gardens and founded the Botanical Gardens to bedeveloped by Joseph Banks. This fascinating story of continuing royal residents
and the development of the Botanical Gardens through the next century is the theme of this lecture.
