The grounds of Carlton House

While Holland and his team worked on the building and its interior, the landscape designer Humphry Repton prepared plans for the garden. These watercolours showed George what might be achieved in the grounds of Carlton House. Repton made the large drawing with a flap (now mounted separately) to suggest raising the ground level to screen the garden from St James’s Park. The elegant conservatory was never built.
