Battersea Park offers more hidden secrets, variety and opportunities for simple enjoyment than most visitors ever hope to find in an inner city park. Located just a few miles south of the famous Marble Arch, the park is often hailed as London’s most interesting public green space by both locals and visitors.

Charming gardens dot the space, including the Old English Garden. The calm oasis is just a short walk north of the Cricket Pavilion, and its walkways and arbors burst into life each spring with delicate blossoms. The Sub-Tropical Gardens, first planted in 1863, attract attention immediately with their unusual plants, huge leaves and show-stopping kaleidoscope of colors.

The Russell Page Garden was designed by the famous landscape architect to add beauty to post-war Britain, and it still offers a bright break in the city with its masses of color, exuberant domed yew trees and formal beds of roses.

London winters can be harsh, but beauty can be found at the park in all seasons thanks to the Winter Garden. As snow blankets the city, the garden still provides vibrant color.
