Inner Temple Garden


Inner Temple Garden

The historic oasis of calm in London's Inner Temple.

Location: Crown Office Row, Blackfriars

Description: The Inns of Court that surround this garden have existed here in London since the 14th century. The gardens here with their rare and unusual collection of trees sweeping down to the River Thames and bounded by spectacular herbaceous borders, however pre-date this. By the 15th century orchard's and roses were tended here, and a more formal design, with terrace and paths was laid out in 1591. The Long Border acknowledges the Wars of the Roses.

After Bazelgette constructed the Victoria Embankment, direct access to the river was lost.

It remains a little-known haven of tranquillity and beauty, in the heart of busy London.

Check out the Queen Anne sundial, the c1730 decorated iron gates, and the statue of a kneeling blackamore by Van Ost.

The garden is usually open from 12.30 to 3m each weekday.
