Explore the grand gardens and forests of Europe and Britain with esteemed landscape designer William Guilfoyle, as he did with his wife on their honeymoon. The Guilfoyles took their Grand Tour honeymoon in 1890, at the height of William's reputation as the architect of one of the world's great botanical masterpieces, Melbourne's Royal Botanic Gardens. His visits to impressive landscapes – as diverse as Kew Gardens, Versailles and the wild gardens of England – inspired a series of illustrated articles, which were published to great acclaim on his return to Australia.
