British Medical Association Council Garden

The garden of the British Medical Association is a hidden secret on the site of Charles Dickens' house on the corner of Tavistock Square. It was designed by architect Sir Edwin Lutyens and is today planted extensively with medicinal herbs.
Planting is refreshingly green around a central oval pool and the use of physic plants among the planting bears witness to the continuing role of plants in contemporary pharmacology.
Our 2017 planting explores medicinal herbs and their historical role in health and nutrition.
