The Garden

The garden court in the large central atrium of the Coutts building has recently undergone a complete redesign and refurbishment. It features a range of contemporary planters and retains its fish pool with mature koi carp.

Coutts Skyline Garden, the brainchild of executive chef Peter Fiori, was created in spring 2012. The garden, cleverly installed by the late Richard Vine with the help of the Clink charity based at HMP High Down, lies on each side of a narrow walkway around the roof of the building, lined with troughs and tubs in the bays between windows.

There are four areas: the south-facing fruit garden, Vine Lane - a tribute to the late Richard Vine, a kitchen garden and the cottage garden.

There are excellent views over the Strand, St Martin-in-the-Fields, Nelson's Column and Zimbabwe House.
