Hidden Waterfalls - we visited The Japanese Garden Island at The Regent's Park in Westminster

Bedded amongst the 12,000 roses that bloom in The Inner Circle of Queen Mary's Garden, Regent's Park, is an often unnoticed gated bow bridge that leads over hushed lake waters to an island garden, created by The Royal Botanical Society and dating back to the 1850's.

Winding paths fringed with burnt autumn sprays lead past a weathered stone lantern and over trickling streams to a hidden waterfall. Often undisturbed by others, the feeling of discovering an uncharted space lingers on the breeze as the drum of the city is swept away with the lullaby of cascading water.
