This three-acre garden offers peace in the centre of the City, within the historic precincts of the Inner Temple. There has been a garden here since the 12th century. At the main entrance, a deep herbaceous border flanks 18th century gates. In June this border comes alive with alliums, hesperis, foxglove and aquilegia. Together with salvias, asters, geraniums, grasses and dahlias, the border gives colour until winter arrives. There is also a woodland garden, herbaceous and shrub borders with interesting foliage plants, container displays and a majestic avenue of plane trees along the Broadwalk, offering glorious views along the Thames.
