Travis Elborough’s new book is a fascinating, revelatory insight into the history of our parks. From their medieval life as private royal hunting grounds to their modern incarnation as public spaces teeming with activity, theirs is a story of land-grabbing monarchs and Restoration fops, great Victorian industrialist, and punks. Celebrating a small wonder that we often take for granted, it will have your next trip to the park brimming with history, anecdotes and new meaning.

Travis Elborough is an author and cultural commentator. His books include ‘The Bus We Loved’; ‘The Long Player Goodbye’ and ‘Wish You Were Here’.
