The Garden

A very elegant square, north of Hyde Park, surrounded on the north and part of the south side by original stucco-fronted houses of pleasing proportions, dating from 1860. The garden has different moods, from more formal planting to naturalistic sections. A rich and diverse selection of plants includes many unusual shrubs, trees and herbaceous perennials, whilst retaining some of the original and impressive London Plane trees. This is a private square for the sole use of the residents of the houses and flats around it - a heaven of peace close to the bustling Edgware Road and busy Paddington station.

Garden Associates: Georges Player
