This garden has lovely views and commemorates the former riverside pleasure gardens, which opened in 1845 and closed in 1877.

The Pleasure Gardens hosted entertainment including concerts, hot air balloon rides and fireworks.

Whistler captured the scene in ‘Nocturne in Black and Gold – the Falling Rocket’. Cremorne Gardens was regarded as somewhere where respectable women would not wish to be seen alone!
