The main landmarks of Burtons’ St Leonards.

St Leonards Gardens


St Leonards Gardens were created around a wooded valley originally known as the Old Woman’s Tapshaw.  The Gardens represent a unique page in English architectural history.


Like Regent’s Park, which James Burton had helped to create in the 1820s, villas are scattered in and around the Gardens, forming the integrated landscape of a residential park.

Double Villa


On the corner of East Ascent stands a Burton Double Villa. This Double Villa was one of two villas that flanked the Assembly Rooms Only this, the East Villa remains.
