Gardens in EC3 London

Aldgate Square

There are gardens and green spaces dotted all over EC3 including the wonderful and recently developed Aldgate Square.

There are church gardens like the garden of St Dunstan in the East, and green spaces along the riverside like Grant’s Quay gardens.

Some gardens like Seething Lane Gardens have been redesigned and replanted and some gardens are hidden away like the garden alongside St Peter at Cornhill.

More recent additions are roof gardens, open to the public at 20 Fenchurch Street and 120 Fenchurch Street.
