Palladian Way

Palladian Way Walking Guidebook

Palladian Way Walking Guidebook

by: Guy Vowels
The Palladian Way is a 125 mile walk linking England's finest Palladian estates in Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire, beginning in Buckingham and finishing in Bath.
Palladian architecture, though often forgotten, is a popular classical style responsible for one of the world's most famous buildings, The White House. Here in Middle England, we are lucky enough to have some of the finest examples of Palladian style. From the stature of Stowe House in Buckinghamshire to the intricacy of Prior Park near Bath you will be invigorated and inspired by this long distance walk through some of England's finest countryside and estates.

Guy Vowles' book, The Palladian Way, gives a step by step guide to this architectural trail, with coloured photos, illustrated maps and recommendations for eating, drinking and overnight stays. When of interest, Guy delves into local history and influential characters of the period such as the famous landscaper Capability Brown, The Mitford Girls and Flora Thomson, author of Lark Rise to Candleford.
