At the heart of Mayfair, in the West End, Grosvenor Square has a rich history that can be traced back to 1726. When created, it was the first of its kind in London and caused a sensation. Local residents and visitors marvelled at its wonderful, classically-inspired landscaping. A piece of the country in the city.
Almost three centuries on, we want to reawaken this sense of wonder and secure a bright and sustainable future for this celebrated, green space. So we are gathering public opinion about what a great 21st century urban garden, larger than Trafalgar Square, can and should be.
We opened a public call for ideas, polled 1,000 Londoners and will run an international, professional competition inspired by the responses to find the best way to make Grosvenor Square "sensational" once again. #shapingthesquare
