“Wonderful little park”

Paddington Street Garden
Ranked #793 of 1,869 things to do in London
Attraction details
Reviewed 19 February 2018

This is fairly near Baker Street (road and station) and Marylebone High Street and providers a bit of respite.
It can get quite busy sometimes - depending mainly on the weather but also what day it is (and if it's lunch time) but there are plenty of benches around.
Plus a children's play area at one end.

These are two small public garden located on either side of Paddington Street. The larger one has a children's playground. The gardens were built in the 18th century as additional burial grounds for St Marylebone Parish Church. When the gardens were converted to a recreational area, most of the tombstones were removed, though some remain at the edge of the gardens. The gardens are well maintained with nice lawns and flower beds and provide a quiet retreat from the busy street.

Must have walked within 100 metres of these lovely gardens a hundred times without knowing they are there, hidden away between Baker Street & Marylebone High Street. The tulips were a blaze of colour on a very dull April day, the grass a verdant green and among the flora are two big gazebos and a mysterious mausoleum with a largely unreadable inscription. At the far end there is an extensive kids' playground. Better still, a very old lady stopped to tell the story of a famous 18th century courtesan, who is buried somewhere in the gardens after succumbing to an infected wound caused accidently by a knife as she frolicked with her two lovers in a Covent Garden bath house. The old lady said she walked through the gardens every day and always told the long-departed victim that she wasn't forgotten. A magical moment in the midst of the bustling West End of London.

Actually, there is not one but two gardens, located at both sides of Paddington Street. The south one is larger and has a children’s playground, but both gardens are very pleasant, well-kept and greatly maintained.

We visited London for a week and rented an apartment a few minutes away from this park. We ended up coming to the playground every single day we were in London. We loved the location between Marylebone High Street and Baker Street, it was very convenient to stop by here. The playground had a rubber surface and a good variety of equipment.

The park itself has many benches, though they seemed to usually be taken, and there are two ping pong tables.
