Welcome to the City Gardens

Across the 'Square Mile' the City of London manages a maze-like array of gardens, churchyards, parks, plazas and highway plantings.  All of these are overflowing with trees, shrubs, flowers and a wide variety of wildlife. They are also an integral part of the City's unique history: from the largest open space to the tiniest leafy churchyard, all have a tale to tell. Some are even so hidden away from the bustle of City life that you would hardly know they are there.

These wonderful spaces are managed for the enjoyment of residents, city workers and visitors, as well as for the varied wildlife that depend on them.  The City prides itself on high horticultural standards and has received numerous awards celebrating this achievement.

So why not pay us a visit? 

You can take a guided tour of the gardens, take a seat relaxing in a tranquil garden setting, investigate London’s varied history or join us at one of our events.​​​​​​​​
