Kensington Palace Vicinity, London
Kensington Palace Vicinity, London
The Dutch sunken garden in Kensington Palace gardens is seen here from one of the gates allowing access – to approved persons only – from Cradle Walk (a.k.a. The Bowery). Cradle Walk is an arched arbour of red-twigged lime. These shaded ‘cloisters’ and the gardens were laid out in 1908, or perhaps more accurately they were ‘re-established’ for Edward VII, re-creating the formal gardens that existed at Kensington Palace in the C17th. Kensington Gardens were once part of Hyde Park until William IV enclosed the area as the gardens for Kensington Palace.
