Courtfield Gardens (West)
The GardenA spectacular London plane tree dominates this award-winning mid-Victorian garden which is for the private use of residents only. Rare ornamental trees (wedding cake, handkerchief, tobacco and giant sequoias) feature alongside a wide variety of shrubs. Dating from 1873, the square gets its name from a meadow in the Earl's Court Manor estate - Court Fields - which was demolished when the Underground was built. Perimeter railings have been reinstated (after the original railings were used in the war effort) together with a wildlife area and pond, some tropical beds, a native fruit tree orchard, play area and a Victorian arbour and gazebo.
