From Borough underground station, use the traffic lights to cross Borough High Street and Great Dover Street into Long Lane. You will pass St George's Gardens , which can be visited now or at the end of the walk (see below for description). Walk down Long Lane for about 10 minutes, and turn left into Kipling Street. Turn right into Guy Street Park.


Once a burial ground for Guy's Hospital, then a recreation ground, the area was re-landscaped and reopened in 2003. In spring, a trail of crocus winds its way through the gardens and continues in Leathermarket Gardens opposite.
