The Garden

The Inner Temple Garden is a surprising oasis of peace in the centre of the City, occupying a three-acre site within the historic precincts of the Temple. There has been a garden here since the 12th century.

A deep herbaceous border flanks the 18th-century gates at the main entrance, renowned for the use of succession planting and innovative colour combinations. In early summer this border is luminous with a variety of alliums, inter-planted with delicate forms of aquilegia amidst the developing foliage of salvias, asters, geraniums, grasses and dahlias, which supply a tapestry of colour until the onset of winter.

Head Gardener: Andrea Brunsendorf
