This is a hidden gem in the middle of all the concrete and glass. Free to enter, it's located above the new crossrail station at Canary Wharf which is easy to access from both DLR and tube stations. Not very big, takes about 20mins to...More

This a strange setup where you have a small green rooftop garden in a busy financial area. There is a curved path with hard benches. There could be more information displays describing different plants. First I thought sound of birds came from loudspeakers but there...More

This is a lovely garden to visit if you are in the Canary Wharf area. It is free entry and has restaurants at either end. A word of warning, though, it is not good on a cold day. We went whist it was snowing, not...More

Canary wharf is a nice business area w huge buildings. Visited the garden on a Sunday. It’s very calm and nice. So relaxing. Maybe some flowers would be good. Definitely recommend

Pleasant place to walk through in the midst of a busy built up area. A lot of greenery but no flowers. There were benches to sit on.

This was opened a few years ago and sits on top of the future cross rail station at Canary Wharf. It’s present enough and quite at times. You forget where you are and it makes great lunchtime spot if your lucky enough to get a...More

This inspired garden has brought an, (often overused), ‘oasis’ in this busy area. However this description is I think apposite on this occasion. It is also free to visit.

15 minutes if you are just walking through, it is just the length of the building, but there are two sides to it. It is free and you can spend as long as you want, there are chairs to sit down.
