These gardens, ‘serene with a touch of waywardness’, are surrounded by five-storey stucco-fronted houses built in 1858 by Henry de Bruno Austin.
Originally family houses for members of the then-emerging professional classes, the grade II-listed properties are now flats and hotels.
The gardens have recently been upgraded and replica wrought-iron gates installed as a step towards replacing the lost WW2 railings. They enclose a tranquil green space in this busy enclave of Bayswater.
