When Sigmund Freud arrived in London in 1938 as a refugee from N**i-occupied Austria, he wrote ‘We have it incomparably better than at Berggasse and even than Grinzing’, a district of Vienna where the Freud family owned a summer home. Not only was the house at 20 Maresfield Gardens larger, but the family also had their own garden. Their home of many years in Vienna, at Berggasse 19, was an apartment – and like many city apartments it had no garden to enjoy.

The Freud family took full advantage of their treasured garden at all times of year. The weather on 6 May 1939, Freud’s 83rd birthday, was fine enough for the celebration to take place in the garden.

Today the garden is enjoyed by visitors and staff alike. From summer parties and private hire events, to education groups and workshops, the garden is an integral part of the Freud Museum London. Just as Freud cherished this tranquil space in the 1930s, the garden today is still an oasis of calm and an escape from the modern world.
