Once part of the Pleasure Grounds created by renowned landscape architect, William Kent, the gardens belie the proximity of Central London with the illusion of the solitude of the countryside. Filled with a full spectrum of English wildlife, the gardens feature a woodland walk taking in features such as the 325 year old Tulip Tree, a listed monument to a fromer Prime Minister and a Kentian Kneeling Venus. The pinnacle feature is the wonderful grass amphitheatre designed by Edwin Lutyens once danced in by Anna Pavlova.
