Hampton Court 2000
Hatfield House & Gardens

1pt.gif (86 bytes)The gardens here are the inspiration of the Marchionness of Salisbury and she still is actively involved in their running. They have been organic since 1972. Very pleasing to the eye with two distinct areas, the West Gardens and the East Gardens. A large property and not too hard to walk around and see everthing. The house was built in 1607-1611 by Robert Cecil who employed Robert Tradescant the Elder to plant the gardens. He was sent abroad to bring back treasures to plant.

rattan cloches and of course another unique bench that I saw. This
garden will be in my tour for 2001 so I don't want to give too much
information away on it!
