The Garden

Eaton Square is named after the Duke of Westminster's principal home, Eaton Hall in Cheshire. The Grosvenor estate’s master builder Thomas Cubitt started laying out the six gardens that form the square in 1826. Today, the garden, which won Gold in London in Bloom 2018, is a peaceful retreat of formal lawns and shady pathways. The south central garden is open for OGSW. Mixed borders around two formal lawns are divided by a shady enclave and formal raised beds provide seasonal colour. There are also sundials and water features by sculptor David Harber. Famous residents have included Neville Chamberlain and Vivien Leigh.
