The Garden

Stationers' Hall Garden is a delightful hidden courtyard garden dominated by a London plane tree which was planted in 1837 and said to have gained nourishment from the ashes of illegal books burnt here in earlier times. The Stationers’ Company, who received their charter from Mary Tudor in 1557, were printers and booksellers, ‘stationed’ in and around St Paul’s Churchyard. The hall and a warehouse were rebuilt after the Great Fire and these form three sides of the small courtyard garden. On the fourth side is the Wren church of St Martin within Ludgate.
