Belying its central London location, Barts Square is surrounded by pockets of delightfully tranquil green space, from intimate and hidden cloisters and gardens to the expansive outside spaces at The Barbican and St Paul’s Cathedral.
Christchurch Greyfriars Church Garden
St Paul’s Cathedral
Within the ruins of the old Christchurch Greyfriars, for example, sits a serene rose garden, one of the many green spaces that makes this area so special.
St John Priory Church
Postman’s Park with its moving memorials to selfless acts, the cloister garden at the Museum of the Order of St John and West Smithfield Rotunda Garden are yet more hidden oases to stumble upon. Whichever you choose, Smithfield’
green spaces offer welcome respite, an invitation to step out of the City without having to leave.
