Berkeley Square is a town square in Mayfair in the West End of London, in the City of Westminster. It was originally laid out in the mid 18th century by architect William Kent.
The gardens in the centre are open to the public, and their very large London Plane trees are among the oldest in central London, planted in 1789.
Whilst Berkeley Square was originally a mostly residential area, there now remains only one residential block on the square – number 48. The square is mostly offices, including a number of hedge funds and wealth management businesses.
The square features a sculptural fountain by Alexander Munro, a Pre-Raphaelite sculptor, made in 1865.
The buildings around the square include several by other notable architects including Robert Adam, who designed Lansdowne House (since 1935 home of the Lansdowne Club) in the southwest corner of the square on Fitzmaurice Place. The daring staircase-hall of No. 44 is sometimes considered William Kent's masterpiece. Gunter's Tea Shop, founded under a different name in 1757, is also located here.

  • Currently the gardens are very dry with the low rain fall in the city. I can only imagine how beautiful these gardens are when there is sufficient rain.  more »
