The Garden

This three-acre hidden oasis in the heart of the City is located within the historic Inner Temple precincts. There has been a garden here since the 12th century. At the main entrance, the deep herbaceous borders flank 18th century gates. In June, the borders come alive with swathes of different varieties of foxgloves, alliums and sweet rocket. Together with salvias, asters, geraniums, ornamental grasses and dahlias, the borders provide delight until winter. There are also areas of meadow, woodland/shade planting, interesting container displays and a majestic avenue of plane trees along the Broadwalk, offering glorious views along the Thames.
