Created by Cardinal Wolsey in 1515 with ‘baskets of primroses’ and ‘nails to bind the arbour’: coveted by Henry VII the gardens passed to royal hands and saw the march of kings and queens through the bling of Henry’s court to the cool symmetry of ‘Dutch’ gardens of William and Mary. Despising clipped work, yews grew to giants under Queen Victoria, who threw the gardens open to the ‘multitudes of vulgar people’ who sailed toy boats on the canal and got lost in the maze. Join us for a fascinating insight into scandal, sex, madness, art, literature and of course, gardens!
