London Wonderground comes to life with a gorgeous botanical wonderland known as the Pleasure Garden

Kensington & Chelsea Art Week (KCAW) have collaborated with artists Baker & Borowski to transform this meanwhile space on Warwick Road opposite Earl’s Court Underground station into a show stopping art installation.

As part of Underbelly’s London Wonderground set in the former site of the Earl’s Court Exhibition Centre, this botanical wonderland is created especially for the Summer 2021. The artists’ takeover is made up of a huge 35-metre mural inspired by local wild flowers, alongside a sculptural structure and a floor design reminiscent of ‘Sumer of Love’ colours, echoing the Pleasure Gardens popular in the area during 18th century.


The focus of this installation is on the 21st century and our modern considerations of nature in the urban environment. Inspired by the flora and fauna of Kensington and Chelsea, the area is transformed into a meanwhile space encouraging visitors to enjoy the previously closed site.

The Pleasure Garden takeover by Baker & Borowski is part of KCAW Public Art Trail, made through the support of The Earls Court Development Company, and marks the opening of the inaugural Kensington + Chelsea Festival.


The summer long performing and visual arts programme will run until to 31 August. Celebrate by visiting this unmissable spectacle at SW5 9UB, on view 24/7.
