The Garden

This beautiful, award-winning Victorian garden, named after Viscount Ennismore formed part of the gardens and paddocks of Kingston House, which stretched the length of Prince's Gate. 

Following the development of the Kingston House estate (1840-70),  the garden, covering half an acre; was laid out around the London plane trees.The present layout of grass, beds and borders, with a few minor changes has been in place since WWII.

An urn (a reduced-size replica of one designed by William Kent for Alexander Pope) was erected in memory of Ava Gardner, who lived at No. 34 for many years.
