Not the most attractive of Central London’s gardens, though it’s a little unfair judging it in February. There are graves and memorials dotted around, all that’s left of the original churchyard, which served two local churches up to the middle of the 19th century. One standout feature is a nice terracotta statue of the muse of lyric poetry, Euterpe. Another is the grave of Anna, the 5th daughter of Richard Cromwell, the 2nd Lord Protector and the son of the first, Oliver Cromwell. There is a curving path through the gardens and several benches. It’s a quiet place, but it does look and feel a bit unloved and uncared for.

Formerly a burials for 2 churches in Bloomsbury. By 1800s, the grounds had fallen into a bad state and by 1855, had become so overcrowded that it had to be closed. In the decades that followed, the grounds re-opened as a public space and sitting markets. To this day, the graves remain, but there are now paved walkways around the grounds as well as sitting areas for quiet contemplation amongst the graves. There's really isn't much to see in the grounds and the grass isn't that well maintained with lots of muddy and bare patches of grass.

My visit coincided with the grass being cut: the good news – the smell of freshly cut grass, the bad news – a council worker was using a leaf blower. A peaceful place, used by local people: dog walkers, the lonely, those wishing to escape their apartments for a while. It is an old burial ground. A wonderful and amazingly little vandalised terracotta statue of Euterpe, the muse of instrumental music, continues to impress, not least because it stands alone and the terracotta colouring gives it a distinctive look.

The gardens can be entered from Handel Street, Heathcote Street or Sidmouth Street. The gardens were once the burial grounds for two nearby churches and it remains consecrated grounds. The lovely old Plane trees here provide shade while the graves and tombstones provide its sense of history. It is an oasis of greenery.

Walked through this park on our way to the British Museum. It is small and nice. There is a fountain in the middle, a cafe, and a walkway that has vines growing overhead. Worth a stroll through the park. :) Or if you need a place to relax and enjoy the day, this would be a great place to bring a blanket and bunker down.
