Portaloos are too wide for the gates and cannot be brought into the gardens as they would create a health hazard if they were to be hoisted out after use.

We prefer you to use the far lawn by the Ladbroke Grove Gate
If access to guests is by one of the garden gates, please place a minder by that gate to prevent unwanted guests.
Be considerate with loudspeakers. Live music is OK
