Discovering London’s Secret Parks and Gardens


Are you in need of a tranquil spot amongst the mayhem?


For a big #city, #London has a pleasantly surprising amount of green space to enjoy. Most will be familiar with the capital’s larger parks, but there are also dozens of smaller parks and gardens hidden across London.


Postman’s Park

Just north of St Paul’s Cathedral lies Postman’s Park, named so for its popularity with the workers at the nearby Old General Post Office. Opened in 1880, the small park is filled with trees, benches and, most uniquely of all, the Memorial to Heroic Self Sacrifice, a memorial of plaques commemorating ordinary people who died whilst saving others.


Kyoto Garden

Hidden inside Holland Park, the Kyoto Garden is a slice of #Japan in the middle of a quintessentially #English country garden setting. Opened in 1991, the garden was a gift from Kyoto and is designed to reflect all the key characteristics of traditional Japanese gardens, including stone lanterns and koi fish in its pond.


Kensington Roof Gardens

A garden with a difference, the #Kensington Roof Gardens is tucked out of view atop the former Derry and Toms building on Kensington High Street. Until 2012 it was the largest roof garden in Europe, and its impressive size means that it encompasses not just three themed gardens (#Spanish, #Tudor and English woodland) but also a restaurant and #exclusive clubhouse.
