Paddington reservoir gardens

 Paddington reservoir gardens is a little haven in the middle of bustling Paddington. You can step off the main road, walk down the stairs and find yourself in a beautiful oasis, where you can grab a deck chair and a book and soak in the sunshine, as well as the peace and quiet. A space that was used as a reservoir containing the city's water supply in the 19th century that has been transformed to a serene public space, maintaining much of the original framework.
Justine and I met here yesterday to take some photos and to wander around the nearby streets.
