This 8-acre sanctuary retains many of its original Victorian features, including a perimeter carriage drive circling the, a serpentine lake and seven Grade 2 listed structures. This beautiful green space in the heart of the city was home to the acclaimed poet Philip Larkin, who lived in a house overlooking Pearson Park from 1956 – 1974. Larkin was heavily influenced by the city. On an autumn afternoon in the park, you can experience something of the atmosphere that pervades much of his work.
