Garden
“A picturesque waterfall flows into a peaceful rock pool, where koi carp dart beneath the surface and peacocks stalk past on the banks. It might sound like the setting for a Japanese fairytale, but this is, in fact, one of west London's most serene spaces: Holland Park's quaint Kyoto Garden. It's the perfect spot to unwind with a book, linger with your thoughts or fight your samurai rivals to the death. ”

Garden
“Highly desirable and perfectly lovely... Through the back is a smart dining room looking over the compact but peaceful garden; but you can eat in the pub too, and you should. The food’s far better than the usual pub grub, and pleasingly avoids the seen-it-all-before US diner stuff. Instead, it ranges from Jersey oysters to more complex dishes such as courgette and butter-bean cassoulet or lamb’s liver with green sauce. ”

Garden
“The rookery is a beautifully cared for garden that is run by the friends of Streatham Common, a coop of dedicated locals who have turned it in to a fantastic walking spot and gardens. There is also a cafe located at the start of it, but I'm more putting it in to recommend the Rookery itself. If you fancy tennis, there is also a single court there.”

Botanical Garden
“Devoted to gardens and their design, this relaxed museum sits inside St Mary’s at Lambeth church. As well as a changing exhibition, there is also a permanent display of historic gardening tools that includes such unexpected sights as a glass cucumber straightener and a tin of Corry's “Slug Death”. There's an excellent café and gift shop, while at the back is a small 17th century-style knot garden and the tomb of Admiral Bligh of “Mutiny on the Bounty” fame.”
