Waterloo Gardens West, Carlton House Terrace, Central London

Serving the Reform Club, the Travellers Club and the Athenaeum Club, Waterloo Gardens West was developed on part of the former royal garden of St James’s Palace, when Regency architect John Nash built the surrounding Carlton House Terrace, according to the London Historic Parks & Gardens Trust. Since 1832 this pleasant green space has been managed by the Crown Estate Paving Commission. The Trust says the garden underwent restoration in 2008 and its 19th Century character has been retained with serpentine paths, trees and shrubs. Although is not normally open to the public, Waterloo Gardens participates in the London Open Gardens programme each year.
