The Garden

Overlooking the iconic St Paul's Cathedral, this mini jewel of a City rooftop space has been recently created and is planted with innovation and style in contemporary raised beds. The small private rooftop garden demonstrates the versatility of a corporate urban space, using many herbaceous plants and grasses. The high level urban greening forms part of the City’s biodiversity green corridor, which stretches from the Barbican gardens in the north to the river in the south. It showcases the importance not only of creating beautiful planted spaces, but also of providing essential habitats for wildlife within our City buildings.

Please note that the roof garden is not accessible to wheelchair users due to an out of service lift.
