The 12 acres of lawns, woodland, borders and pond at Manor Fields make up the biggest private gardens in London after Buckingham Palace and the American ambassador’s residence in Regent’s Park. They share third place with the grounds of the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lambeth Palace. Click on the links above left to take
