The Garden Landscape Guide

The Hill Garden

A fine example of the period 1910-1925, with a unique atmosphere of mellowed classicism. The Pergola Walk, linking the formal gardens of the main house and the more gentle lawns of the lower garden is the main feature. The dramatic contrast between the towering trees of West Heath and exotic plants climbing the graceful Pergola offers a unique experience. The fill for the Walk was obtained from the Northern Line excavations. Designed by Thomas Mawson for Lord Leverhulme.

    A beautiful, peaceful place, I go often. It is always lovely.
    The inscriptions on the benches show that other people have shared this experience.

    Such a pity that it was still locked up when I and several others tried to go inside at 9.30am

    A great garden, which once formed part of the extensive gardens of Iverforth House. Probably not on a par with the great gardens of England but as entry is free, it gets 5 stars.

    Fantastic hidden garden, off the beaten track in Hampstead. Great when the wisteria are out.
