A Regency Palm House

I can’t help lingering over windows, especially when they come in the form of a delightful Regency era Palm House. (The Regency era is the period between 1811 and 1820 when King George III was deemed unfit to rule and his son, the Prince of Wales, ruled as his proxy as Prince Regent. In 1820 the Prince Regent became George IV)


You’ll find this little beauty in the Bicton Park Botanical Gardens in East Devon, as well as acres of landscaped gardens to walk around.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Very interesting – I’ve not heard of the Regency Era before. The building reminds me of the top of a giant bullet – or space ship.
    It looks like a great place to visit 🙂

    1. Duly noted! I think I need at least 6 months to accomplish everything I want to see and that is just around Sydney! I think the trips to Oz are going to have to increase 🙂
