The Garden

This award-winning Grade II listed historic garden square was laid out in the early 1840s as part of Thomas Cubitt’s Pimlico development plan. Warwick Square won Gold in the London in Bloom Competition 2015, 2016 and 2017, with judges describing it as a “gardeners’ delight – a structured hotchpotch from the everyday to the unusual and exotic”. It also received the Silver Gilt in The London Squares Garden Competition 2017. The all-season garden features a rose garden, formal bedding and a relaxing lawn area. Mixed planting of shrubs, herbaceous and annuals ensures year-round colour and fragrance. New railings matching those donated to the WW2 war effort have been installed and the original hoggin paths and rope-edge tiles reinstated. Two original Victorian mounds have been relandscaped with timber forts, concealed paths and hiding places to encourage children’s play.
