Enjoy nature in the heart of the city

Spring has well and truly sprung. The blossoms are blooming, the birds are singing and it certainly feels like summer is on its way. And what better spot to enjoy the longer days and mild spring weather than from the comfort of a beautiful secret garden? Your own little oasis of calm in the heart of the city.

Whether you’re in town for a few days or a few months, these secret garden spots ensure you have a safe and secluded space to spend quality time with family and friends this summer in London. From sun-kissed rooftop terraces to luscious green lawns complete with pergolas and BBQs, here are ten little patches of paradise in the heart of Britain’s bustling capital.

Colville Terrace IV

Notting Hill

Colville Terrace IV is a delightful lower ground-floor flat in picturesque Notting Hill. This charming two-bedroom apartment welcomes up to four guests with a bright, light and airy interior and that most precious of London home features – a garden.

Ossington Street

Notting Hill

Taking the term ‘hygge’ to new heights, Ossington Street in Notting Hill is a stylish sanctuary. We especially love the luscious back garden, complete with a sun-kissed wooden deck and vibrant beach chairs - the perfect spot for Aperol Spritzes in the sunshine.

Mount Ararat Road


Nestled between Kew Gardens and Richmond Park, Mount Ararat Road is a nature lover’s dream. With a soft lawn perfect for sun-kissed picnics and a beautiful stone patio just made for afternoon cocktails, this is an idyllic spot for fun-filled summer days.

Pembridge Villas III

Notting Hill

Tucked away amidst towering trees, Pembridge Villas III is the perfect spot to enjoy a picnic together or to savour a quiet moment away from the buzz of nearby Westbourne Grove and Portobello Road.

Alwyne Place


Grand, majestic and entirely unexpected: the garden at Alwyne Place might just be the pick of the bunch. Nestled down an idyllic Islington street, the home’s unassuming exterior belies the magnificent maze-like grounds you’ll find tucked away around the back.

Clifton Hill

St John's Wood

Boasting lots of lawn space, comfy garden furniture and even its very own trampoline, the garden at the lovely Clifton Hill is a paradise for families. Let the little ones bounce away their energy, while you sip glasses of wine on the flag-stone patio without having to keep checking where the kids have gone.

St George's Drive VIII


St. George's Drive VIII boasts a captivating walled garden, where lush greenery flourishes amidst meticulously crafted pathways and charming floral arrangements. Enjoy a tranquil haven amidst the bustling cityscape of London.

Willes Road II


Willes Road II unveils a picturesque garden straight out of a dream, adorned with fragrant blooms and quaint pathways that wind their way through the verdant landscape. Nestled within this idyllic setting is an inviting al fresco dining table and BBQ terrace, making it the perfect spot for hosting gatherings.

Holland Park Avenue VII

Holland Park

Cocooned by a cosy red brick wall, the garden at Holland Park Avenue VII feels like a serene sanctum, far away from the bustle of London’s streets. What’s more, the magical (and slightly larger) grounds of Holland Park itself are only a hop, skip and a jump away from this heavenly home.

Ebury Street


Ebury Street is a cozy oasis adorned with vibrant flowers, lush greenery, and charming decor. What sets it apart is a large circular table perfect for hosting gatherings. Ebury Street is the ultimate spot to unwind with friends and family.
