Notting Hill, 111-117 Lancaster Road London Lighthouse AIDS Memorial Garden since 1 July 1990
The London Lighthouse AIDS Memorial Garden is situated at the Museum of Brands, originally built in 1866 as the Bayswater Jewish School. The original 1990 planting was a donation from Chelsea Flower Show's gold medal-winning Crabtree & Evelyn scented garden to form part of the London Lighthouse HIV/AIDS centre. The south-facing courtyard garden has since developed into a secluded enclave in the heart of Ladbroke Grove.
Planting includes herbaceous perennials, climbers and tender sub-tropical plants, such as Brugmansia, Abutilon and Musa, which flourish in this microclimate. Nest boxes encourage small bird species to thrive in the garden. Plaques in memory of beloved ones are still present. Gary Eisenhower has been the Garden Coordinator at the Lighthouse since 1988.
