Georgian London
Addresses and Locations


Ranelagh Gardens


London had several fashionable Parks.

Rotunda Ranelagh gardens adjoining the Pensioners hospital became popular as a place to escape the city and take in the cleaner air in Chelsea. Balls, concerts, dinners and of course gossip were shared here almost daily. It quickly exceeded Vauxhall in popularity, but it's popularity waned until the season of 1804 when the fashionable set abandoned it entirely.
