The Garden

Award-winning Cadogan Place garden was the first square developed by Henry Holland, together with Sloane Square, from 1777. The South garden - formerly London Botanic Garden - features 300-year-old mulberry trees, grown originally for the silk trade. Hans Sloane Garden, adapted from a 2003 Chelsea Flower Show design, celebrates the life of physician and collector Sir Hans Sloane. Dickens describes Cadogan Place - a long and rectangular site - in Nicholas Nickleby as the connecting link between the aristocratic pavements of Belgrave Square and the barbarism of Chelsea. Actress Dorothy Jordan lived at No 30 and slavery opponent William Wilberforce lived at No 44.
