The Garden

The award-winning garden at Pembridge Square was built between 1856 and 1864 for the Square's residents, on land that was once part of the Hall Estate. The long rectangular garden is surrounded by railings and a privet hedge. It also features a fine woodland area, wild flowers at the east end, a rose garden in the west and a long herbaceous border as well as a children's play area. The private communal garden has received numerous awards in categories including the best garden in north Kensington and the best large private garden square.
