The Garden

This gem of a secret riverside garden, just beside the Globe Theatre, belongs to the Dean of Southwark Cathedral's private residence and dates back to 1712. Hidden away from neighbouring and bustling tourist areas, it has become a tranquil haven for wildlife. The Deanery garden has been planted with mature shrubs, trees and herbaceous plants and is tended by the cathedral's gardener. Access to this small garden is via historic Cardinal Cap Alley, which is narrow. Visitor numbers may have to be restricted at busy times.
