The area
Address
Neighborhood: Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.

Little park
Jan 2020
It's really just a very small park/gardens. But then i guess for Londer's that live on the street and not having there own garden, this is a well space for them.

Great location!
Oct 2019
Great location near Kings Cross Train Station. If you are coming from Heathrow, you should get off at Kings Cross and not Russell Station. I love the shops above Russell Station, but with luggage, you want to take Kings Cross to get to Cartwright Gardens. It is much easier. Be prepared to do a lot of walking either way and to walk up lots of stairs to get to your room. Rooms are small, but very charming. Studio room are air conditioned.

Splendid crescent and gardens
Sep 2019 • Solo
Cartwright Gardens is the name given both to a crescent of elegant Georgian buildings completed in 1811 as well as the enclosed gardens they face. Their original name was Burton Crescent after the developer James Burton but were later renamed Cartwright Gardens after the great reformer and political campaigner John Cartwright who’re bronze statue appears on the eastern side of the gardens. Today much of the crescent houses hotels whilst the gardens accommodate two tennis courts.

We loved staying in this neighborhood.

It was walkable, easy to get to St Pancras/King Cross, we walked to the British Museum. Cabs were abundant. My one draw back was I wish there was little more upscale market close by. Lots of pubs.

Cartwright Gardens

The Cartwright Gardens were originally built between 1809 and 1811. Originally named Burton Crescent, it was was later renamed Cartwright Gardens after the political reformer and local resident John Cartwright.

The gardens is surrounded by hotels and residential blocks. It's pretty well maintained, has paved walkways and also contains four tennis courts. Although the courts are for residents use only. There isn't a great amount to see, even in summer.

Accidental discovery
Nov 2018 • Friends
I chose a different walking route through London from Kings Cross today and happened upon these gardens. At first I thought they were for residents as the railings looked like they enclosed the entire gardens.

However in the centre you will find four hard tennis courts for hire through the open play website. I was also impressed on this, the mid term Election Day in the US, to read about Cartwright after whom this park was renamed due to the reformations made.

Nice gardens with four free tennis courts in the centre of London
Dec 2017 • Solo
These gardens not far from Euston Station were originally created between 1809 and 1811 as part of the estate of the Worshipful Company of Skinners, one of the City's historic livery companies.The gardens were originally known as Burton Crescent after the developer James Burton, but they were later renamed Cartwright Gardens after the political reformer and local resident John Cartwright. A bronze statue by George Clarke was added to the garden in 1831 which is set on a granite plinth that has details of Cartwright's works as a reformer. The garden is enclosed by iron railings, with mature plane trees, laid out with grass and circular walks. But the main feature is a set of four hard tennis courts, which can be played free and booked through the OpenPlay website. The courts are open from 08.00 to dusk every day of the week.
