It’s not a venue that attracts big numbers, but mac has plenty going for it for photography – a good park with lakes and formal flowerbed and modern and ancient architecture. The cafe is spectacular and the staff friendly – what’s not to like!!

Taking good pictures is not about being in a pretty place, it’s about seeing beauty wherever you are, and presenting it to someone who’s never been there. This can be more rewarding in an urban park than in a Capability Brown garden, where all the shapes and proportions have been worked out for you.
