Hidden behind 'crack alley' you will find this little hobbit park. My old camera teacher Cedric planted a banana tree there. It was still there last time I checked. Nice place to have lunch or a joint (but be careful cops know this, too.)
Absolutely fascinating & absorbing charming Garden. A total delight in the heart of this bustling area. Must be Preserved, Supportwd, & Protected, giving so much rejuvenating pleasure to so many. Discovered totally by accident! despite thinking I knew this area, which I have frequented from the late 1950s (though I know the Garden is fairly recent). Seems to be mainly natural wild plants, but all the richer for that, growing in rich profusion. Loved the meandering paths & scattered seats. Interesting chat with Chris in charge that day. Has Frogs too! Must visit again.😉
Before they poshed-up this garden it truly was a garden for people and a garden for wildlife...and very delightful it was as well but now is minus 3 of its 5 stars in this review for not being reliably open to the public and the locals any more. All we can do is peer in through the bars. I've just returned from having attempted to visit ...between 12 and 3pm as informed... to find it CLOSED AGAIN AND ON A SUNDAY. Poor locals... so much the poorer for the loss of this city oasis of all things natural and wonderful. Did you think we would not notice or do not care?? I do realize the drug pushing in the area is a huge problem so the garden must be protected and that a limited opening requiring supervision is the result of such unsavoury activity but one cannot help feeling resentment when a valued resource is withdrawn from the area but also goes into an events market as an exclusive venue for hire by the wealthy...many of whom might not be from this area. If this is the only way such a precious thing can survive, and I suspect it is, then all I can say is...how sad but needs must...keep the garden safe. I would prefer it if I were still welcome to drop in for 10 minutes here and there and at all sorts of times of the day. I do hope hours can be extended soon.
Transformed 30yrs ago by BTCV volunteers and locals from waste land into a tranquil rambling wildlife garden. Just behind St Giles and off Tin Pan Alley (Denmark Place) and Shaftesbury Avenue it is one of London's hidden gems. Nearest station is Tottenham Court Road. Curiously, the last time I visited it was shut to the public but available for hire. It has a small stage and pond, & lots of quirky corners. Hopefully, it is not shut to the public permanently as it was built for the local population and not for private profit!
A cosy little garden in the centre of London next to St Giles and close to Tottenham Court Road. The stated aim is to provide a community garden to using sustainable methods and to encourage wildlife diversity. The place just looks a little over-grown when I was there. There's a sad little pond with maybe a couple of fishes, but nothing great to look at. More for locals than anything else and certainly wouldn't go out of the way to see it.
