The Most Glorious Prospect reveals the historic gardens of Wales as experienced by contemporary travellers and tourists. Endlessly fascinating, intricately detailed and delightfully humorous, it relates how the great gardens were first made accessible to the polite world before being opened up to a wider, middle-class audience. A bygone era of garden visiting brought to life using travellers diaries, letters and experiences. Gardens featured: Chirk Castle, Margam Abbey, Powis Castle, Llanerch Park, Dynevor Park (Newton House), Picton Castle, Wynnstay, Plas Newydd (Anglesey), Baron Hill, Penrhyn Castle & The Penrhyn Estate, Stackpole Court, Piercefield, Hafod, Plas Tan y Bwlch, Plas Newydd (Llangollen) and Bodnant Hall.
