Manchester Square Gardens
Manchester Square Gardens is a beautiful Georgian square with a fine collection of trees, shrubs and plants. The garden, which was first laid out between 1776 and 1788, comprises a central lawn with London plane and lime trees and winding paths lead to a seating area. Unlike most of London's squares, it is still dominated (northern side of the square) by the mansion after which it was named. Manchester House, built in 1777 and later known as Hertford House, is now home to the Wallace Collection - a major collection of paintings, furniture and decorative arts - left to the nation by Lady Wallace in 1897.
