Bedford Park Area Guide
Bedford Park was the first London Garden suburb, which embodied the newly fashionable Queen Anne Revival style of the 1860’s. Key design features include rubbed-brick arches and dressings over and around the openings, terracotta embellishments, open-bed and broken pediments, monumental chimneys, shaped and Dutch gables, tile hung gable walls, white painted balustrades, balconies and bay windows and wooden faces.
With the formation of the Bedford Park society in 1963 the post war decline and threatened demolition of some of the architecture was averted.
The legacy today is a stunning conservation area of predominantly Grade II listed properties offering an ideal living environment with great transport facilities and a great sense of community.
