Lost Gardens of Wanstead House

Tuesday 14 November 2023 at 7:30 am - 9:00 pm

A talk by Dr Hannah Armstrong, author of ‘East London’s Lost Palace’

Dr Hannah Armstrong invites you to travel back in time and visit the magnificent gardens of one of Georgian England’s most significant residences, Wanstead House. The demolition of what was once crowned ‘The noblest house not only in England, but in all of Europe’, brought about the demise of a landscape once associated with some of the leading designers of the era including George London, William Kent and Humphrey Repton. Piecing together evidence from historical prints,maps, paintings, written accounts and archaeological remains, Hannah will document the garden’s evolution from the late 17th century until the early 19th century and recreate this important lost landscape.
