'Rose Garden/Secret Garden' London Location Required

Hey All, I'm the Producer of the short film Benchmarks starring Emmerdale's Bhasker Patel.

The film centres on a 30 year old guy, named Mark, who enters into a conversation with his 10 year old self and reflects on the "what might have beens" and what he does next. Then his older self joins the conversation too..

This is very much a film about mental wellbeing and expectations and hence we are looking for a peaceful garden location, within a park, or on it's own, that has 3 benches in close proximity, wild flowers and a natural beauty.

So Londoner's, Location Manager's, on your travels through London, could you recommend this type of space? Ideally not over run with human traffic and nestled in a peaceful spot.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks in advance!


  • The Community Garden in Mountsfield Park, SE6, has a wild meadow and a number of picnic benches side-by-side. No one present early in the mornings. Photo:

    There's a "secret" garden behind the Royal Observatory in Greenwich Park. Not sure about benches and types of flowers, but there is a stone staircase. Few people venture into it, especially early mornings. Permission is required to film in Greenwich Park, usually involving a fee and a long Health & Safety form.

  • Mecklenburgh Square is in Bloomsbury, is private, and is glorious. Can't imagine it'll be free, but you might do a deal and get privacy.
