Quick question re the Luxembourg/similar parks and gardens

Postby TheOfficeIsClosed » Fri Jul 31, 2015 8:34 am

Would places like the Luxembourg gardens be accessible at night? Did they have fences/walls and gates with specific closing times, or was it possible for anyone to just walk in whenever they fancied?

Sorry if any of this was answered in the book, I haven't got access to it at the moment and it's been a while since I read that section! I also tried searching this site first but if I missed something let me know :)

I'd imagine that, like most parks in London, it would have closing times but I'm not sure. I'd take some creative licence with that fact, if you're doing fan fiction ;)

Where is the Luxembourg park? Is it in the book or is it in some fanfic? Or both of course. I could find online one reference and that was when Tholomyes was spouting off, couldn't tell what he was getting at, but I'm hungry right now so it might make more sense after lunch.

I have actually made bullets like they're doing in my avatar. Then loaded the gun with a ramrod, and shot it. But I'm not feeling real good about guns right now.

It's usually called the Jardin du Luxembourg: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jardin_du_Luxembourg
