Patrick Bowe is a Dublin-based landscape designer and architectural historian. The author of Gardens of the Caribbean, Gardens of Central Europe and most recently Gardens of the Roman World, Mr. Bowe is also a sought-after lecturer both in Ireland and abroad. He has accompanied a number of previous tours, including voyages to the Caribbean, to rave reviews and looks forward to returning to one of his favorite destinations.
Peter is chairman of three organizations: The 1805 Club, the international committee of Waterloo 200 and Thames alive, a new campaign promoting the River Thames with distinctive events and pageants. He was vice-chairman of the Official Nelson Commemorations Committee and organized the reconstruction, in 2005, of Lord Nelson's river -borne funeral procession. Peter is a published author and lectures widely on polar and naval history, notably Horatio Nelson. After graduating om Economics at Hull University he worked for over twenty years as an investment consultant and subsequently branched out on his own marketing and communications and an historical event organizer.
He has written articles on Nelson and naval history, and his first book Voices from the Battle of Trafalgar, published in August 2005 is republished in May 2011. Peter has given lectures at the National Maritime Museum, The Greenwich Foundation, Royal Naval Museum, Royal Institution and at many schools, colleges and universities. He lectures largely on naval (particularly Nelson) and polar subjects, and has prepared maritime history talks for Mediterranean, Caribbean and Baltic cruises. For instance, the latter includes lectures on the fall of the Romanovs, the Siege of Leningrad and the Royal Navy’s role in the Baltic in 1919. He tailors his lectures to the moment and the occasion and therefore never gives the same lecture twice!
