Friar Park is one of the marvels of late Victorian gardening: a Gothic revival palace with garden to match. Begun in 1889 It had everything you can imagine: formal parterres, flower gardens, and topiary together with lakes, grottos, a collection of sundials and a Japanese garden where people could literally be seen walking on water. But most famously it had an alpine garden built on an almost unimaginable scale complete with a miniature version of the Matterhorn.
