The Garden

Montague Street Gardens is an historic secret garden at the heart of the Bedford Estate and is one of ten squares in the elegant Bloomsbury area. Bloomsbury is famous for its formal garden squares which are overlooked by the many period properties that line its leafy streets. Once a cobbled mews of stables and carriage houses, this private garden stands behind magnificent wrought iron gates and features a number of herbaceous borders, formal lawns and specimen trees. The garden also contains sculptures and beehives that produce award-winning honey.
