The Garden

Cornwall Gardens is a garden square with three private communal garden enclosures, each laid out formally with straight paths around the perimeter. The original Victorian market garden was developed by the Broadwood family - famous piano makers - and was sold for development from 1866 to 1879. Known as Little India due to its colonial links, the gardens became home to writers, painters, financiers and other fine Victorian minds. The gardens are shaded by some of London's tallest plane trees dating from 1870 and the trees, lawns and flowering shrubs provide the peaceful and inspirational atmosphere of a woodland garden.

Gardener: David Ashton, One Two Tree
