In this fairly concisely written and lavishly illustrated coffee table syle book, Sir Roy Strong, a former director of the Victoria and Albert Museum and the National Portrait Gallery, presents the history of England since the 1600's by
taking us on a royal tour tracing the development of England's famed royal gardens. Sir Roy begins with a chapter on the gardens of William III, and other highlights include surveys of Hampton Court, Brighton Pavilion, and up to today's princely real-estate, Highgrove Gardens, and it's innovative ecological developments.

This book is a little 'heavy-going' for the casual reader, but I would recommend it to anyone planning a garden tour or castle tour of Britain or to a history student looking to add depth and breath to the ordinary British history reading list.
