A Sunday walk around Kensington and Chelsea (South)

By Area Coordinator Daniel Cutter

This walk links gardens open on Sunday.

Please check garden opening times before commencing your walk.


Begin at South Kensington station. Head towards the south end of Exhibition Road, where the Ismaili Centre sits at the junction with Thurloe Place. Leaving the Centre, continue 50m along Thurloe Place to reach Thurloe Square Garden – its entrance is on the opposite (south) side. Next, retrace your steps to South Kensington station. This offers many options for coffee or lunch before heading west.

Moving on, take Harrington Road, directly opposite the station, and continue straight, crossing Queen’s Gate and continue down Stanhope Gardens and turn right onto Ashburn Place. At Courtfield Road turn left and continue to Courtfield Gardens (East).

Turn right out of the garden and then right onto Courtfield Gardens road. Continue straight across Collingham Gardens road to reach Courtfield Gardens (West) with entrance gates located on the far side. Exit onto Laverton Place, then take the first left onto Collingham Gardens road to Collingham Gardens. Then head back to Laverton Place and turn left, before taking the first right onto Bramham Gardens road. The entrance to Bramham Gardens is on the far side.

From Bramham Gardens it is a short walk to Earl’s Court Station – turn right out of the gates, then first left onto Bramham Gardens road and continue to the Earl's Court Road. Turn right and the station is 200m ahead.

For those with extra time, both Earl’s Court Square and Nevern Square are an easy 10-minute walk away. A 20-minute walk to Edwardes Square is worth the effort!
