Golden Square Gardens

Soho is known for being a cool and kooky area littered with fashionable shops, but it is also home to a stunning flower garden. Golden Square Gardens is a historic site where a statue of George II stands, tall and impressive above the surrounding beauty of flowers, trees and well-placed benches. The square is managed by city of Westminster's Parks Services.

Even though there are benches in the square we decided, like 90% of the other people present, to make ourselves comfortable on the steps, walls and grass.

It is a seasonal outdoor beauty, and when the sun is out, it seems impossible to sit anywhere but outside. Enjoying lunch in the sunshine is always fun, and we spotted a group of individuals who clearly worked together, enjoying a picnic on the grass.

Everyone is welcome. One of the natural beauties in Soho, anyone passing, or who works in the area seemed to flock there, and it's no surprise, it's a little slice of natural green in the big smoke.

In one of the busiest areas of town, the square is a terribly fitting location where you can forget about the office, enjoy the gentle breeze, eat your lunch in the sunshine, and admire the nature surrounding you.

Switching off for an hour, or even less, and soaking up the photosynthesis never felt so good.
