The Garden

Queen's Gate Gardens was created in the 1860s when a residential square was built on the site of former market gardens.

The landscaping largely retains its original Victorian layout and the old mulberry and Catalpa trees must be at least 150 years old. The circles visible in the lawn mark underground bomb shelters from WW2.

Our garden is always beautiful, but particularly in spring, when it is spectacular - carpeted with bluebells and brilliant with blossom and spring flowers. In this big city, the gardens are a source of joy and bring a sense of community to the members.
