Event Details

With Polly Putnam

Their Majesty’s Cottage, Kew, built in 1771 for what was then Richmond Gardens, is the earliest example of an ornamental cottage constructed for a garden.  It encouraged the fashion for the cottage orné in England, and its setting near the Botanic garden, surrounded by exotic animals, influenced later designers such as Repton.  Its restoration will be based on research undertaken by Polly Putnam, curator for Historic Royal Palaces.

All Lectures 7-8pm (6.30pm for a glass of wine) in The Gallery, 70-77 Cowcross Street, EC1M 6EJ (entrance down stairs on the right at the far end of the Courtyard).  Nearest underground Farringdon, bus routes 55, 243 along Clerkenwell Road
