South Bank

South Bank

I love it when I find an area that you wouldn’t expect to have been planted up, but is. This walkway at the South Bank Centre could be forgiven for just being a link to one part of a concrete building to another, but care has been taken to line it with lots of tough little plants such as thrift.

The walkway leads from the Hayward Gallery to the Queen Elizabeth Hall roof garden, which is looking better than ever this year – the wildflower meadows are currently at their peak and the raised beds are already full to bursting with herbs, salad and beans. If the weather ever improves, it’s the best place to hang out in London.

  1. Hi we went here today!!

    Fantastic find and such a wonderful hour up there with the wonderful enthusiastic staff. Our children were able to “help” and the gardens look beautiful. Such a wonderful “far from the madding crowd” find.
