About the garden

Coleman Street Garden is a quiet spot close to the bustle of Moorgate. Its bright lawn is complemented by dark granite coping and York stone paving, and the contrasting architectures of Girdlers' Hall and Austral House. The garden is surrounded by bespoke Granite benches and Oak 'Chico' benches, and is a perfect place to relax away from bustling main roads.

History

Coleman Street Garden sits before Girdlers' Hall, home to the Worshipful Company of Girdlers. The first Girdlers Hall was built in 1431 and burned down in the Great Fire of London in 1666. The second Hall was destroyed by enemy action during the Second World War. The present Hall is the third to have been built on the site and was refurbished in 2008, when it also had an additional floor added. Girdlers' is now the last of the Livery Halls on Basinghall Street, where most Livery Companies once kept a presence owing to its close proximity to Guildhall.
