Cornwall Gardens was developed from 1866 to 1879 on a block of land belonging to the Broadwood family, the famous piano makers.

The garden is in three sections. The magnificent plane trees, planted in 1870, are among the tallest in London and, with several other species, contribute to the tranquil atmosphere of a woodland garden.

An irrigation system has allowed the lawns and flowering shrubs to flourish and made further planting possible.

Most of the railings were lost in WW2, but privet hedges now add to the cosy, secluded feel.

Gardener: David Ashton, One Two Tree
