The Garden

Iliffe Yard is the largest of three Victorian workshop yards on the historic 'Pullens Estate' at the Elephant & Castle. This was built as progressive workers' housing in the 1880s and is one of few remaining examples of such architecture in London. What were once light industrial units are now studios for artists, artisans and other creative businesses. A gardening group has turned the yard into a green urban oasis with large numbers of pots, baskets, vines and planters along its 300m length. Visitors will be able to see many of the studio units as well as the yard during OGSW.
