Autumn Term 2019

English gardens in the 18th century

At the beginning of the eighteenth century the formal garden, with its straight canals and long vistas, was dominant. We shall find out how gardens such as those at Chiswick House and the great garden at Stowe became less formal. We will look at the work of William Kent and how the landscape garden evolved, leading towards Capability Brown, the most famous of the garden designers of the later eighteenth century.
