Park Lane Gardens Westminster
Summary: A series of gardens, private and semi-private, remind us that Park Lane was originally a back street behind the houses fronting on to Park Street, rather like Queens Walk or Birdcage Walk. Few of these houses with their bowed park fronts now survive except at Nos. 130-135 and Nos. 93-99, which have small gardens. Dudley House, an early C19th mansion, has a well-kept garden bounded by railings. There is also a small but stylish forecourt garden with fountain, which marks the extent of the forecourt of the demolished Dorchester House. The concrete divisions of the garden, in the same 'moderne' taste as Sir Owen Williams and W Curtis Green's 'Grand' hotel, are invariably lavishly planted and the tree in the centre of the garden illuminated with lights.
