The Garden

Queen’s Gate Gardens were created in the 1860s when a residential square was built on the site of former market gardens. Today's landscaping largely retains the original Victorian layout and the old mulberry and Catalpa trees are believed to be at least 150 years old. Circles visible in the lawn mark WWII underground bomb shelters. A carpet of bluebells and blossom provide a real 'wow' factor in spring while the garden brings joy and a sense of community to its members all year round.
