Just in Time for the Olympics: the Secret Gardens of London

View as Map

In light of the secret gardens maps that posted around the Curbed Universe today, here now Curbed DC editor Amy Rose Dobson offers a guided tour of the magnificent secret gardens of London, where she once lived.

Only one city in the world has produced The Rolling Stones, the wedding of the century, an endless supply of crumpets, and the best curries outside India. All the world’s attention will turn there this July when the Olympics come to London. Not only will visitors be renting lawns to camp on but all the usual tourist spots—including London’s famous gardens—will be filled to the brim with sightseers. Below find a map to some of the city's most obscure green spaces, ones that promise to offer the gentility of a true English summer without the crowds.
