Exclusively British - - UPFRONT TRAVEL NEWS - am­ber­ley-books.com

A sun­lit lawn, blos­som-laden trees, rus­tic chairs, tables laden with teapots and cakes, the tin­kle of teacups and the mur­mur of con­ver­sa­tion… tea gar­dens be­came pop­u­lar in Lon­don dur­ing the eigh­teenth cen­tury and thrived for over 200 years. Won­der­fully il­lus­trated, gar­den his­to­rian Twigs Way in­cludes a list of tea gar­dens that can be vis­ited to­day. The Kitchen Gar­den was once a key part of ev­ery large coun­try home, which are now pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tions for visi­tors. This is the his­tory of the Bri­tish kitchen gar­den and those who tended them. Gar­den his­to­rian Caro­line Ikin spe­cialises in the Vic­to­rian era and worked for the Gar­dens Trust and the Na­tional Trust.
