Why We Love This

This book tells the history of London's royal parks and their evolution from private hunting grounds and gardens into public spaces and venues for great events. In some cases, the parks were royally owned as long ago as the Norman conquest, and several were acquired by Henry VIII during the Reformation. At this time they were kept private, but during the 18th century most of the parks were opened to the public. The book examines each of the nine royal parks from their acquisition by the monarchy through to the present day, outlining their use and management and the major historical moments associated with them.
