The Garden

Recently given an award as London's best large private garden square, Crescent Garden is a three-acre communal garden, just off Warrington Crescent. It is surrounded by stucco-fronted houses dating from around 1865, including a grade II-listed balconied terrace.

In the 1970s local residents defeated plans by the Church Commissioners to turn the garden into communal car parking. Today it has lawns, a fine set of interesting trees, island beds and many unusual plants and shrubs. There is also a children’s play area.

The area was bombed in WW1, when enemy planes mistook the canals of Little Venice for the river Thames.
