This beautiful, award-winning Victorian garden was first planted in 1870, when it formed part of the gardens and paddocks of Kingston House, which stretched the length of Prince's Gate.

The garden, named after William Hare, Viscount Ennismore and Earl of Listowel, has been extensively developed and restored over the past 20 years. An ornamental urn commemorates the actress Ava Gardner, who lived in Ennismore Gardens for many years.

In 2012 Ennismore won a London Gardens Society Highly Commended certificate in the ‘large private squares' category.

Don't miss Rutland Gate South Garden, just around the corner.
