Whatever happened to our London pleasure gardens?
by Sue Barnard MA Bed (hons), Garden Historian and Journalist
Pleasure gardens provided great excitement for many in the mid-1800s. A circus, firework gallery, theatre, bowling saloon and grotto were just some of the features that delighted the visitor. But by 1907 Warwick Wroth – anticipating the demise of the pleasure garden – wrote ‘Cremorne and the later London gardens’. Sue Barnard investigates what may be left and what we might only yearn for.
