History Behind the Location
Brown Hart Gardens in Mayfair London is not well-known but once you find it you will cherish it’s tranquillity. Only a short walk from Selfridge’s and Oxford Street, Brown Hart Gardens is a raised paved area used by local people, workers and visitors to Mayfair during the day for a quiet lunchtime sandwich or to read in peace.
Brown Hart Gardens are an amalgam of the former Brown Street on the south side and Hart Street to the north, originally two 18th century streets of small houses. When the houses were pulled down to make way for Chesham and Balderton Buildings in 1886-88, a communal garden was laid down the centre for the benefit of the residents of the flats. Since 1973 the blocks have been taken over by the Peabody Trust, and their names changed from ‘Buildings’ to ‘Flats’.
