The Garden

Pleasant Georgian square built in the 1830s on the site of an old market garden, land previously owned by Sir Thomas More and Sir John Danvers and the furthest west of the squares leading off the King’s Road.

An Interesting lawned garden with unusual plants, mature plane trees, a central play area and enclosed by railings, it was redesigned to celebrate the millennium with a number of new features.

The square was named after Paultons in Hampshire, the country seat of George Stanley, the son-in-law of Sir Hans Sloane. Sir Hans was Lord of the Manor of Chelsea in the 18th century and gave his name to Sloane Square, Sloane Street, Sloane Avenue and various places starting with 'Hans'.
