Hi Alberto:

Here are some suggestions:

Hampton Court Palace located on the Thames just
outside of London.  It has some spectacular rose
gardens.

Queen Mary's Rose garden at Regent's Park.

My favorite garden is at Sissinghurst Castle, south
of London.  Former home to the famous Vita
Sackville-West.  If you ever get a chance to visit
you won't be disappointed.

Gosh, I wish I was in London right now.  You
lucky thing !  =)

Jessica,
Thank you so much!!!!!!!
But
What I'm looking for is just AUSTIN's rose, i mean a garden which contains
only (or mostly)
that  kind of roses, Austin's indeed.....

Alb
;-)

P.s. Anyway I'll have a look at these gardens this week-end,  because my
father is here
in London to visit me and that's the reason why posted this message into
this NG, which I thanks very much!!
I mean, my father has a great passion for Roses (He's italian just like me),
I'm honestly VERY ignorant about......... but I simply like them, they're
the only flower that deserve the name.
I'm a web designer!!!!
I also Know Vita Sackville-West not directly, but just because ***ia
Woolf is one of my favourite writers (the best woman, actually), and I've
read her diary - a very long book, but essential to understand ***ia a
little bit more.....
Anyway, sorry for having been OT, and any help about the web....... just
email me, ok?
I 'd rather  thank you in the NG rather than directly in your mailbox
for a matter of privacy!!!!

If you have time to travel outside London I would suggest a visit to Mr
Austins Garden....(if no time visit his website :
http://www.davidaustinroses.com/en/ )...and do not forget Hidcote Kiftsgate
and Sudely Castle...all in the North west of London and doable in a day...
