Before starting the ride, you may wish to visit the SOAS Roof Garden. This is situated above the Brunei Gallery in the west corner of the Square (beyond the cabmen's shelter). Cycle parking outside.

If you are visiting this garden on Open Garden Squares Weekend, be careful to check the opening times.


The School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) has a modern Japanese-style roof garden designed by Peter Swift and opened in 2001. Its theme is 'forgiveness' and it is a space for quiet contemplation and meditation. The garden is open to the public during the Brunei Gallery opening times.
