Grosvenor Square

Grosvenor Square is a large garden square in the exclusive Mayfair district. It is the centrepiece of the Mayfair property of the Dukes of Westminster, and takes its name from their surname, “Grosvenor”.

The central garden, which was originally reserved for the use of the occupants of the houses as was standard in a London square, is now a public park managed by The Royal Parks. Access to the western side of the square is severely restricted by the very obvious security measures around the U.S. Embassy. At the western end of the garden there is a small memorial dedicated to the British victims of the September 11 attacks. The memorial includes an elliptical granite block engraved with the names of the victims and the poem For Katrina’s Sun-Dial, by Henry van Dyke.
