This urban farm in Waterloo is a real hidden gem, just moments from the South Bank. A strip of wasteland has been transformed into a thriving community resource and a haven for nature, with an emphasis on learning to care for people, plants, animals and the environment. The farm, which is a partnership between Oasis Hub Waterloo and Jamie's Farm, runs therapeutic and educational activities for children, workshops, and seasonal events, and welcomes volunteers. As well as the farm, there is a private walled garden designed by Dan Pearson, which is normally only usable by staff.
Farm craft projects for children plus an opportunity to meet some of the animals that live on the farm, including goats, guinea pigs, chickens and rabbits. Teas, coffees and fresh farm produce. Families can also enjoy a beautiful playground in neighbouring Archbishop's Park.
This award-winning oasis of green space in south London is open to all, seven days a week. Walworth Garden, with fruit trees, sub-tropical planting and glasshouses, is also home to a horticultural training centre and a vast array of wildlife.
Awarded a Green Flag 2020/21, and a Gold in London in Bloom. A stunning gated garden just 100 yards from the River Thames, Tate Modern and Globe Theatre. A bridged wildlife pond, fernery, raised herb beds, grape vines and native flowerbeds.
A hidden secret garden with a unique story and many delights in the planting. A small paved area includes a pond and fountain. Within the narrow space, climbers cover the walls and pots brim with foliages to create texture and colour.
