Who Knew

Secret Gardens,
Hidden Churches

Who knew ...

That there are c.250 open and/or green spaces in the City?
That you can still walk around the garden full of drugs which Shakespeare may have visited
That Norman “Gherkin” Foster had to design a building to fit around an old tree?
Many of the most interesting sites in the City are somewhat tucked away and often quite small. While the City does not have big parks like those further west (its history means the space was mainly used for trading or churches!) it does have c.250 open and green spaces: many created by the destruction of the Great Fire and the Blitz. They are delightful to find and explore.
