The peacock that used to live at Claremont Landscape Garden in Esher was fantastic, it’s colors were stunning especially from the front but also from the rear as seen in the earlier post.
The garden is really good fun and well worth a visit. Steeped in nearly 300 years of history, the eighteen-century garden is a green oasis in the heart of Surrey within easy reach of London. Once a Dukes’ retreat and a playground for princesses, Claremont has always been somewhere to escape everyday life and enjoy simple pleasures with family and friends. Many of the great names in garden history played a part in the creation and development of the estate. Over the years Sir John Vanbrugh, Charles Bridgeman, William Kent and ‘Capability’ Brown all put their own distinctive stamp on the pleasure grounds, which were part of the foremost royal residence in the country.
