Your Ideas

During the course of Simon’s journey around England members of the public were invited to post ideas of events and leisure pursuits that he could photograph, thereby positioning him alongside his fellow countrymen and attempting to involve the ‘English', to a certain degree, in their own representation. The ideas that were posted provide an interesting snapshot of the country in 2008 and work alongside Simon’s photographs. They illustrate what's important to people and explore their own thoughts on notions of Englishness.

From this week on, we get 45,000 people over just 3 weeks coming to see our world-famous quintessentially English rose garden: these are centuries-old rose varieties which flower only once in June. Their scent is superlative, the shapes of the blooms exquisite the stories behind their names romantic, and they attract visitors from all over England and the world. We're a National Trust property open every day until 8.0pm.
