A small area of gardens and specimen trees with carefully manicured paths, flower beds and lawns, adjacent to the Bund. Free entry- a pleasant place for a stroll, not sure if it is possible to go into any of the buildings.

If you are visiting or staying on the Bund or if you just live in Shanghai, the historic British Consulate building is a must visit. Not usually on tour trips, this is a wonderful addition to an early morning (or evening) walk along the Bund....More
