From May 1 Paradise Lost The Casino is all that remains of the vast 18th-century garden at Marino. Described by Charles T. Bowden in his Travel Guide of 1791 as a "terrestrial paradise", the demesne design was inspired by Lord Charlemont's extensive Grand Tour. The exhibition gathers together an eclectic collection of evidence and remnants of the exotic planting, fascinating architecture, and classical sculpture that inhabited the garden. Accounts of contemporaries who visited and sampled the delights of Marino, such as Mrs Delany, bring the past to life. The exhibition is supported by an illustrated catalogue, a heritage-trail smartphone app and an online exhibition (www.paradiselostexhibition.com).
