The Royal Crescent Garden was laid out by Robert Cantwell in 1846.
The perimeter railings, removed in WW2, were restored in 1997 and the gardens were restored from 2003. An oak gazebo is a beautiful centre-piece, surrounded by a rose and herbaceous border.
The garden has some beautiful trees, with two magnificent plane trees at least 170 years old, a tulip tree, red oak and some younger specimens, such as Prunus mackii, snakebark maple, Gleditzia, Liquidamber, Magnolia, Davidia involucrata.
The garden won the Kensington Society award for garden design in 2007 and first prize for communal gardens in North Kensington under the Brighter Kensington and Chelsea Scheme in 2008. It came second in that competition from 2009 to 2013 and again in 2016 and 2017. The London Gardens Society gave it awards in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.
