The Garden

This garden was made famous in the 1999 Notting Hill film starring Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts when the couple climbed a fence to sneak into the private communal gardens at night. It is part of the Ladbroke Estate, which also includes Arundel Gardens and St John’s Gardens - see ladbrokeassociation.info for more details about the estate. In 1823 prominent London architect Thomas Allason planned out these generous communal gardens. They were organised in a concentric layout of crescents with the outer crescents dating from the 1860s.
