BBC article: British parks and landscapes

Below is an article by the BBC about British parks and landscape design. If you have time to read it, you can learn a lot of vocabulary, times in British history and British place names.

Something which keeps coming up in the article is the Victorians, Victorian times and the Victorian era. These terms refer to the time when Queen Victoria ruled Britain (1837 – 1876). The Victorians means British people who lived under Queen Victoria. The other terms refer to the period when she was in power.
