At Hampton Court Palace, Terry Gough, Gardens and Estates Manager, will share the horticultural history of the Palace from the Tudor King Henry VIII to the present day, followed by a special guided garden tour. The afternoon's events will continue at The Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace, where exhibition curator Vanessa Remington will talk about depictions of royal gardens and you will get a special insight into the fascinating conservation work undertaken in preparation for the Painting Paradise: The Art of the Garden exhibition.
