Gallery: Burlington Gardens Opening

This week we finally celebrated the official opening of Burlington Gardens with Westminster City Council, the Lord Mayor of Westminster Andrew Smith and the Royal Academy of Arts.

The £1.4 million scheme, in partnership with Westminster City Council and West End businesses has re-designed Burlington Gardens as a civic space, facilitating the shared use of the street by pedestrians, cyclists, and vehicles. The public realm design recognises the importance of the street for the Royal Academy of Arts, celebrates the Academy’s new entrance, provides an inviting threshold to several local places in anticipation of the Elizabeth Line station opening at Hanover Square, and reinforces the area’s setting as the centre of the London art world.
