The Garden

Wilton Crescent Garden is a tranquil, crescent-shaped garden, a stone's throw from Belgrave Square. Thomas Cundy, the Grosvenor Estate surveyor, added Wilton Crescent to the original 1821 Wyatt plan for Belgravia. In this garden, modern sculpture mixes with imposing London plane trees and a white planting theme. The garden was honoured with a Gold London in Bloom award in 2021.

Senior Gardener: Stuart Camm
