St Olave’s Hart Street

This garden is part of the medieval 15th century church which was restored following severe damage in the Blitz.

The church is best known as the one attended by diarist Samuel Pepys and where he and his wife Elizabeth are buried.

Entry to the garden is either via the church or through the 17th century churchyard gate on Seething Lane. It is a beautiful small garden with a tiled labyrinth, in the middle of which is a Jerusalem Cross. The garden was redesigned in 2014.
