Picturesque Garden development

Garden Concept | Overview

An interpretation of a natural overgrown 18th-century Picturesque garden that was intended to appeal to not only the eyes but the heart and the mind. They were in part a reaction of Baroque formality, inspired by the new fashion for landscape paintings of wild, romantic landscapes often featuring classical ruins. There was often a planned sequence of features or a ritual journey that would refer to a well-known fantasy story. In this garden that story is Mozart's 18th-century opera 'The Magic Flute' told through a series of garden features.

This garden is due to open in late 2019.
