The Most Glorious Prospect by Bettina Harden

The Most Glorious Prospect by Bettina Harden is the history of garden visiting in Wales between 1639-1900

This beautiful book details the bygone era of garden visiting, brought to life using travellers’ diaries, letters and experiences

Bettina Harden documents the historic gardens of Wales as experienced by contemporary travellers in a book that is endlessly fascinating, intricately detailed andhumorous

The travellers’ diaries, letters and tours of Wales conjure up a lost world of gardens now largely vanished or altered beyond recognition from their initial construction

Bettina Harden is the owner of an historic garden of Wales, outside Pwllheli, and was for six years Chair of the Welsh Historic Gardens Trust. She founded the Gateway Gardens Trust, the first charity with a mission to extending access to heritage through social inclusion. H
