This is the secret garden in Regents Park( please be patient while the pictures load
It is a haven of peace and quiet. A good place to go with a favourite book or just to sit and think.Go with a friend or spouse but never with more than 2 other people.
This is a circle garden which is one part of the garden of St Johns Lodge.
It was photographed in late summer.
this is the entrance to the garden
It looks lovely at any time of the year
here is a map of the garden
On the left of the map is the entrance where the arbour is which appears twice on this page. Then in the middle is a large circle with a fountain in the middle. And behind that are a large circle and two small circles shaped roughly like a mickey mouse head and ears.

It shows Lycas , a friend of Hercules and a mermaid.
