Inspired by the majestic painted mansion buildings and their gardens of the conjoined Palmeira Square and Adelaide Crescent which overlook the seafront in Hove. The construction of this very fine square and crescent took some decades to finally complete and they were named to honour the architect, the Baron of Palmeira, (Isaac Goldsmid), and Queen Adelaide, who was Queen Consort from 1830 to 1837, as wife to William IV and much-loved in her time for her tireless committment to civic work.


Nowadays, but two of the mansion buildings are now apartments and flats with the gardens that were made public in 1947.
