South Street

Along with Green Street and Halkin Street Gardens, South Street Garden was laid out by Edmund Wimperis, the Grosvenor estate’s surveyor, as part of his 10-year building plan drawn up in 1910.

The garden centres on a sunken elliptic lily pond with brick and tile walls, and a perimeter path of brick is laid out in a lively herringbone pattern. Other notable features include a handsome age-old plane tree, which predates the garden itself, and a charming potting shed with tiling that blends seamlessly with that of the garden wall. The original owner of 38 South Street was the second Baron Aberconway, a green-fingered gentleman who became president of the Royal Horticultural Society. It is likely that he considerably influenced the original planting at South Street. Frequently Asked Questions
