This quiet, hidden gem of a garden is a real treasure in a very historic part of the City of London, and can be found on the north side of the Temple complex, a short distance from Fleet Street. The L-shaped garden has been planted with a mix of herbaceous plants, shrubs and trees. It runs between Temple Church and the Master's House, which was the residence of the Master of the Temple at the Temple Church. The main garden is an elevated plateau, built above 17th-century catacombs to create more burial space when the Temple Church crypts were full.
This is one of London's oldest gardens, lying between Fleet Street and the Embankment. Famed for its sumptuous herbaceous borders, overlooking lawns interspersed with mature trees, and its views out to the River Thames and London's famous landmarks.
A Medieval Banqueting Hall provides the backdrop for the garden sweeping down to the Embankment. Courtyards and cloistered areas of Barristers' Chambers provide quiet sanctuary in the heart of the City.
The beautiful, secluded garden of the Stationers' Company returns after three years of the Hall's refurbishment. This hidden treasure in the heart of the City of London is an inspirational example of a shaded garden.
