Painshill Park is one of the last great 18th-century landscape parks in England, designed by the Hon. Charles Hamilton, who was inspired by his 'Grand Tour' of Europe to create a picturesque pleasure park providing visitors with 'living pictures', including a cascade, a waterwheel, a Temple of Bacchus, a Gothic tower, a triumphal Roman arch, and a ruined abbey, among other fanciful follies.
