Swedenborg Gardens is an underrated park, but due to recent improvement has a small diverse woodland, a highly successful wildflower mound and impressive seasonal flowering bulbs. The park has very interesting historical heritage; next door to it used to stand London's first Swedish Church (Ulrika Eleanora Church), and in the church's crypt Emanuel Swedenborg and Daniel Solander were once buried. Swedenborg Gardens is a Site of Local Importance for Nature Conservation.
