Showcased in the Queen's House, The Garden of England is a series of three new works by major British textile artist Alice Kettle.

Drawing on the Museum's portrait collection The Garden of England looks at the queens and courtiers involved with the Queen's House, and its original setting as a garden retreat. The exhibition captures the richness and flamboyance of the Stuart court.

This is the inaugural project of the Royal Museums Greenwich contemporary arts programme.

Location: Tulip Stairs and North-West parlour, the Queen's House.
