Royal Crescent Gardens
The GardenRoyal Crescent Gardens were laid out in 1846 by Robert Cantwell. Perimeter iron railings were restored in 1997 and the gardens redesigned from 2003. A rose and herbaceous border surrounds an oak gazebo centrepiece; the garden has two magnificent plane trees over 175 years old, a tulip tree, and our new plantings include elm, parrotia and a lagerstroemia. It won the Kensington Society award for garden design (2007) and first prize for North Kensington garden squares under the Brighter Kensington and Chelsea Scheme (2008), coming second in that competition from 2009 to 2013 and in 2016, 2017 and 2021, and won accolades from London Gardens Society. The garden appeared in last year's virtual London Open Gardens event.
