This is a small pleasant garden alongside the River Thames with nice greenery, flowers in spring and summer, trees and shrubs. It provides a pleasing environment while walking beside the Thames. Lovely views across the Thames as well as Albert Bridge.

Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's
upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops,
eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at
its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely
unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this
showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price
tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down
pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal
