Queen Mary's Gardens, London

4.7
#28 of 159 in Parks in London
One of London's quietest and greenest corners, Queen Mary's Gardens contains the city's largest rose collection, boasting over 12,000 roses. Nearly 100 neat beds display dozens of varieties, from classic to modern. Part of a 166 hectare (410 acre) park in the northwestern section of London, the gardens also contain nearly 9,000 begonias. Named after the wife of King George V and completed in 1934, the gardens lure visitors with their rich scents and colorful blossoms. Early summer is considered the best time to see the gardens, when most of the plants are in full bloom.

  • Best place in the city to relax. Come here with a book and you can spend the whole afternoon smelling the roses, reading a book and enjoying all the green and the sun (if you are lucky that is to be in the city when it's sunny). Check out all the funky Rose type names - like Ingrid Bergman, yummy and delicious and more!
  • In a park endowed with an embarrassment of inspired landscaping this is a highlight and appreciated to best advantage in mid-summer. Here Ingrid Bergman takes centre stage surrounded by her colourful cohorts. Blooming lovely and a boast to the gardening team. Superb.
  • Lovely gardens and water features. Garden is well kept and very clean. Absolute pleasure to explore during the recent sunny weather. Certainly worth taking a picnic basket along with you.
  • A most beautiful garden, well kept, neat and tidy, spotless. Enjoyed myself today. Always have.Never seen so many roses in my life.
  • Whether or not you like manicured gardens, this one is a gem. A beautiful and soothing jewel in the middle of the city.
