Open Gardens 2011: British Medical Association Council Garden (WC1)

Forgive me for being more interested in the building.  Late 19th C  neoclassical design?

The BMC had laid on a string quartet and their cafe was open, so as the sun came out this was a very nice stop.

There’s not much to see: concrete on two levels with a ponds and a green theme with a number of medical plants in the collection.  A large Indian bean tree shades the pond.

The official line is that ‘architect Edwin Lutyens designed this elegant town garden at the heart of the BMA headquarters at Tavistock Square. It is a private garden, much esteemed by members and visitors to the BMA, but little known beyond’.

Lovely music
