Bessborough Gardens
Bessborough Gardens is a London Square contained on two sides by 1980’s pastiche white stucco façade houses. There is a fountain at one end and a central grass area.

A series of well planted borders and a cluster of mature trees create a strong boundary between the space and Vauxhall Bridge Road.

Bessborough Gardens was originally the site of Holy Trinity Church designed by J. Pearson in 1849-52. The church was demolished in 1954 due to bomb damage. Bessborough Gardens is named after Lord Bessborough (John William Ponsonby, The 4th Earl of Bessborough, 1781 –1847), a British politician who was Home Secretary in 1834.
