Description
Royal Collection Trust
Enjoy a seasonal tour taking in the changing sights and natural splendours of Buckingham Palace’s garden. Evocative colour photographs highlight the changing colours, textures, and flora over a year in the life of the stately environs of the garden’s 39 acres in central London. Contrasting formality with seclusion, images capture grass studded with snakeshead fritillaries and fragrant rose borders; immaculate lawns and wildflower meadows; majestic trees and harvests of mulberries and the tree-clad lake and island, which is home to birds and beehives. Historical details and anecdotes draw out the changing tastes of successive monarchs. Including seasonal gardening tips from Head Gardener Mark Lane, a plan of the garden and a timeline charting the garden’s history from 1608-2020. The gardens were, for the first time, opened to the public to enjoy self-guided tours and picnics in 2021: the book is a delightful memento for visitors and would-be visitors alike.
