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...More

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...More

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...More

The gardens themselves aren't terribly special, but worth visiting in order to see the Cable Street mural, an impressive bit of London history.

Although this 'park' is quite small, it is worth a visit to see the old tombs. It is a burial ground almost 300 years old. It's well maintained and you can stroll through or sit and enjoy the peace and quiet.

This is a wonderful little hidden cemetery just north of Coram's Fields and Brunswick Square Gardens. Unlike Coram's, which is strictly a playground for children (adults are not allowed on their own), and Brunswick, which is a bit of a dull park, St. George's Gardens...More
