The Garden

Bloomsbury is famous for its formal garden squares which are overlooked by the many period properties that line its leafy streets. This historic secret garden at the heart of the Bedford Estate is one of 10 squares in the elegant Bloomsbury area. This private garden stands behind two magnificent wrought iron gates and features swirling paths, formal lawns and mature trees. The garden is managed directly by the Bedford Estates' gardening team.

Head Gardener: Thomas Abbott
