Halkin Street

Halkin Street Garden is a beautifully manicured space overlooked by some of Belgravia’s smartest town houses. It was laid out circa 1915 by Edmund Wimperis, the Grosvenor estate’s surveyor, on land that had previously been occupied by stables and mews houses.

The original layout had a pool and fountain as a central feature, but by the 1930s the garden was allegedly being used as a tennis court by Edward VIII and Mrs Wallis Simpson. Around 1991 the appearance of the garden changed again, when part of it was used to build offices and greenhouse space for Grosvenor's Landscape Management Team. In 2008, however, the garden was re-landscaped and returned to its former size, and today the original fountain, testament to a century of history, is set into the north wall.
