View of the royal Review at Hatfield Park with Hatfield House in the background. The gardens date from the 17th century when John Tradescant the Elder was employed by Robert Cecil, to landscape the grounds around his new house. Tradescant planted trees and plants from Europe which had never previously been seen in England. In the 42 acres of land there were also many picturesque features such as orchards, terraces and a maze as well as intricate water fountains designed by Solomon de Caus. The gardens were redesigned in the 19th century and have been popular with visitors ever since.
