Notting Hill Gardens and Squares
From Hanover Gardens, go back down the hill and take the first right into Lansdowne Road. Take the first left into St John's Gardens, passing the entrance to Clarendon Road & Lansdowne Road Communal Garden on the right. (This one is not taking part in Open Garden Squares Weekend this year.) Continue down the hill to Clarendon Road. Turn right along Clarendon Road and take the second right into Elgin Crescent. Then take the first right into Rosmead Road, where Rosmead Garden is on the left-hand side.
This garden is part of the Ladbroke Estate, which includes Arundel Gardens and St John's Gardens. Thomas Allom's plan of 1823 provided for generous communal gardens, organised in a concentric layout of crescents. The outer crescents date from the 1860s.
The garden achieved fame through featuring in the film 'Notting Hill'.
