This is a very nice small park with a great riverside and fantastic Italian fountain . Also a bridge over the road to York house. A nice place to walk through on s walk. The beach with longships is great for young kids too

Lovely gardens which I had known nothing about until strolling along with the family one Saturday afternoon, despite having lived in the area for about 4 years. Really well kept, some incredible statues/water-features which have to be seen to be believed. The highlight for the...More

This is a beautiful Garden. It is usually clean. The Gardners do a good job. However in the evenings a lot of youngsters gather in these Gardens and leave a big mess.

Statues of the "naked ladies" with water cascading over the pond are a unique feature - either beautiful or hideous depending on your taste! The rest of the gardens are pleasant and well worth popping into as part of a walk along the river. They...More

If you are strolling along the river it is worth an hour taking in the beauty and tranquillity of these gardens. The highlight being the naked lady marble statues on the fountain.

York House Gardens are tucked away behind York House and then across a charming bridge to the riverfront. The Japanese Garden in the first part is unusual and beautiful, especially in spring; the water feature in the second part, by the Thames, has a real...More

Set so close to the river, and a couple of minutes from the town. York House Gardens are a must for locals as they are for day trippers. You must pretend, it you are not - to be a poet. The statues transport you to...More

Walk From Strawberry Hill House to York House Gardens (4 Replies)
I am planning ahead for my early September London trip. After visiting Strawberry Hill House I would like to walk to York House Gardens. (and after that, walk to the Twickenham Train Station) Yes, I can find directions using "google", but wondered if there is a way to walk along the river from Strawberry Hill? Also, is the entrance to York House Gardens well marked? (I read a post somewhere where the person said they had difficulty in finding the entrance, that is why I am asking) I thought...More

Yes, I’ve done that walk many times. It’s a lovely 20 minute walk along the river. I don’t find either house difficult to find but I can see why people do - the gardens are on either side of the road, with a little bridge going over the road. I think the main entrance is on Sion Road (which is at a right angle to the river path). Basically you walk down the entire side of the gardens with the river on your right then turn left and walk a short distance up a regular street to get to the...More
