Waterlow Park is a 26-acre park on a steep hillside in Highgate, with spectacular views over the city. The land was the gift of Sir Sydney Waterlow as a 'garden for the gardenless' and the Park opened in 1891. The historic Lauderdale House and its gardens lie within the Park which is landscaped with ponds, a wide variety of trees, colourful borders and grassy slopes. The nearest underground is Archway on the Northern Line and then a short walk or take a bus.
