Beautiful - Even in Late December In December, we were back in Mayfair, and strolled Mount Street Gardens, on the way to Mass, at the Immaculate Conception Church on Mount St. As we had arrived early, after our short walk from Park Lane, we took the time to just sit, and enjoy this small space, in the heart of Mayfair, and tucked away from the regular tourist flows. We have visited here in the Spring and Autumn, but only once before in Winter, as our business trips to London are usually April-May, or October-November. This, however, was a purely leisure trip, so we took the time to investigate the Gardens, in a different Season. Though it was rather bleak morning, the Gardens were lovely, though there were few blooms now. Also, some of the grassy areas were showing signs of dormancy, and also wear from the visitors. The one new feature was a Holiday sculpture, of sorts, the Giving Bear. This was new to us, and from its construction, I would assume that it is temporary and installed only in December. On this morning, the park was very tranquil. It was not until the bells of .the Immaculate Conception Church began calling parishioners to Mass, that there was more than a single person in the Gardens, other than us. It was a lovely half-hour, of solitude, and at a different time of the year, than normal for us. Though it is tucked away, it is well-worth seeking out, especially if someone wishes to just sit (many benches) in a beautiful, and quiet garden.

Created in 1889 out of a former burial ground for nearby St. George’s Hanover Square, Mount Street Gardens are named after the Mount Field, a fortification during the Civil War. They form gardens in front of the Church of the Immaculate Conception home to the Farm Street Jesuits and Latin Masses. To the west beyond the church they comprise a larger square shaped area overlooked by the rear of the Grosvenor Chapel and Mayfair Library. Today they provided a break for labourers to consume sandwiches or the contents of their lunchboxes on a long row of benches nearby all bearing inscriptions to those deceased who had enjoyed the gardens during their lifetimes. Also some bizarre callisthenics performed by a young Muslim woman in black headgear pacing along the wall of the church hall her upper thighs bound together in a black nylon belt. This was after her male companion had taken her essential measurements with a yellow tape measure.

As Beautiful in Autumn, as in Springtime We were back in Mayfair in September, and for once, not on business. On the way to Mass, at the Immaculate Conception Church on Mount St, we spent some quiet time in the lovely Mount St Gardens, beside the church. On this Sunday morning visit, it was wonderfully quiet, and lovely, as there were still many of the flowers in bloom. Travelers are always seeking off the beaten path locations, and this is certainly one. Many want tranquility in the heart of a busy city, and this is certainly one. It’s also a great place for a bit of bird-watching, and one of the signs lists most of the birds, which one is likely to encounter in Mount St Gardens. We spent a good 30 mins in the Gardens, but one could easily occupy themselves for hours, and especially with a good book, in a quiet, beautifully landscaped garden, right in the heart of Mayfair.

Tranquil little garden in the heart of Mayfair. Relaxing spot to sit amongst all the wealth in neighbouring streets.

Hidden away in the heart of Mayfair is this large public garden. There's two entrances into the garden, but both are not clearly visible from the streets. So it was a nice surprise to find a peaceful place to sit and take a break from wandering around the area. Curiously, the garden has a number of "exotic" trees due to the gardens' sheltered spot and warmer than average climate, such as the London Plane tree and especially the Canary Island Date Palm. The latter which seems oddly out of place in the middle of London.
