SECRET CITY GARDENS
**SOLD OUT** It's back! The Secret City Gardens walk.
Saturday 27 May 1100 for 1115 departure
The City boasts dozens of green havens and little known spaces, many that boast fascinating stories rooted in the City's 2000-year history. In the Secret Gardens walk we will explore the horticulture and the history of gardens large and small that have bloomed in ruined churches, graveyards and atop a City skyscraper, and venture south to Southwark to unearth more garden histories.
Among the gardens we will visit:
- the tranquil gardens of the church where Keats was baptised
- the stunning contemporary roof garden atop a City skyscraper
- often called the City's best kept secret, the atmospheric garden in a ruined Gothic church designed by Wren
- the hidden herb 'knot' garden on the foundations of a medieval Friary - with Shakespearian connections
- a haunting graveyard that was the last resting place of Southwark's 'geese' - women working in the sex trade
As ever, we will end up in a pub for lunch/drink for those who wish to carry on chatting! (Not included in price :) )
