The Garden

The Stationers' Hall Garden is a beautiful paved and landscaped courtyard garden dominated by a London plane tree which was planted in 1837, for Queen Victoria's accession, and said to have gained nourishment from the ashes of illegal books burnt here in Tudor times. The Stationers’ Company, which 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 of London in 1666 and these form three sides of the small courtyard garden. On the fourth side is the Wren church of St Martin within Ludgate.
