I love this garden. It’s amazing in spring, summer, or autumn. The architecture is lovely. Dogs aren’t allowed though :(.

In May and June it closes at 8:30 PM: 22 May - 23 July 8.30pm​ 24 July - 20 August 7.30pm​ It is part of Golders Green Park, but there is a gate for Pergola Hill that closes somewhat earlier than the main park.
