1700 - 1772: Two Royal Gardens
For London, the early 18th Century was a time of blossoming culture,
with writers, artists and musicians being drawn to the capital for
access to aristocratic patronage and a growing commercial market.
The capital was teeming with people, with an appetite for entertainment
and diversion and an ever-increasing demand for housing. Some of
the aristocracy moved out of London altogether and indulged their
new enthusiasms for architecture and gardens. Meanwhile, there was
a minority who believed that the wrong king was on the throne.
