Find the waterfall in Regent's Park

It is easy to walk right past Queen Mary's Gardens, hidden within the Inner Circle at Regent's Park, without realising it is open to the public, hidden as it is across a public road from the rest of the park, yet right at its heart. Yet one you know it is there, it is for most the highlight of the park, its rose garden rich with blooms and other areas rich offering quiet havens for wildlife and park-goers.

One unexpected part of the garden opened in 1932 in the name of George V's wife is the waterfall, which is part of a small Japanese garden, and flows down the side of a mound presumably constructed from earth excavated the lake into which it flows. It is possible to climb to the top of the waterfall, from where a strategically-placed bench offers views over the falls, and to the little bridge and gardens below.
