Event Details

The garden at No.10 Downing Street has been enjoyed by Prime Ministers and their families for over 285 years. The terrace and garden were constructed in 1736, shortly after Sir Robert Walpole moved into No.10. The garden is dominated by an open lawn of half an acre that wraps around the building in an L-shape. There is a central flowerbed with flower urns, tubs of flowers line the terrace and roses line the main pathway through the garden. The garden also features an attractive bronze sculpture by Barbara Hepworth, a pond and some lovely trees. Ducks have often nested there before mum and ducklings are escorted back to St James Park. A vegetable garden produces radishes, spring onions, tomatoes and lettuce. There are bird-feeding tables where birds as exotic as a parakeet have been seen feeding.
