Three Great Families and their Gardens: a history of the Astors, the Rothschilds and the Sackville-Wests
Caroline Rayman
Tuesday 02 April 2019

Three Great Families and their Gardens is the story of three very different, but hugely successful families: the Sackville-Wests, the Astors and the Rothschilds.   The Sackville-Wests have been part of the establishment since the Conqueror and the other two families are wealthy immigrants who came to England in the l9th century.  The talk traces the history of the families, discusses their contribution to life in England and celebrates the splendid gardens that they have created.
