Watching south-west Londoners mistake chugging around Richmond Park in their 4x4s for a day in the country isn’t everyone’s idea of fun, but the traffic-free Isabella Plantation is a real oasis. Established during the 1950s, the ornamental woodland garden consists of clearings, ponds and streams and is planted with ferns, exotic trees and shrubs. It’s particularly striking during April and May when the azaleas and rhododendrons put on their annual show.

Love the 'Insiders Tip' to 'climb up' King Henry's Mound – it's no more than 18 inches high! ;)
I would also add it's nowhere near Isabella Plantation! Probably, at least, a mile and a half away.
Lovely gardens, you don't find many places hidden in London like this. My friend got engaged here too, it's just a really lovely location.
