My beloved London hidden gem

Mayfair. A place where you can lose your hair, for sure. But also, a bunch of gems that can feed your sick and tired soul. Few steps away the “big city life”, in a slice of heaven between Green Park and Bond Street, there’s Mount Street Gardens, a public garden arose on a former burial ground and taking its name from the “Oliver’s Mount”, a fortification built under the English Civil War.

Mount Street Gardens is not a place to cross by. Hidden between mansions and the Church of the Immaculate Conception, this is the place where you can have your personal epiphany or just relax contemplating the huge rearing horse placed in the middle of the garden (at the end of the day, this is the place where Johnathan Reyes Mayers confesses to his friend his affair with Scarlett Johansson in Match Point by Woody Allen).

Choose your bench, read words carved on them in memory of people who used to sit there, sit down and breathe. Listen the silence and smell the scent of the ground after a raining day.

Then you hair will magically re-start growing!
