One of London's loveliest garden squares. A beautiful three-acre garden with meandering paths through shrubberies, lawns, flowerbeds, rose pergola, croquet lawn, grass tennis court and a children's play area.
The square was built between 1811 and 1819. By 1820 the garden was laid out much as we see it today. With guidance from the Royal Horticultural Society, it was designed by Signor Agostino Aglio, an Italian artist, who planned the plantings and winding walks in a manner different from most other squares.
A Grecian-style lodge with Doric columns was built for the gardener. Known as 'The Temple', it is still the residence of the square's head gardener.
