Not sure how long it will stay this way but I work in Canary Wharf a few days per week and this is a lovely peaceful place I go to eat my sandwich and relax. It’s a very East Asian design, which is really nice....More

Lots of plants nicely laid out. It would be nice to take a drink out there. And not much of a view. I would only go back if in the area. I would not make an effort to go back.

This sits on top of one of the newer shopping / restaurant areas. It has a restaurant at each end but in between is like a city oasis. Quite nice!

If you're nearby, it's worth checking this out, but don't go out of your way. It's a nice place, but not huge and I felt it needed more variety in terms of plants. The Sky Garden at 20 Fenchurch Street in The City is much...More

We were in the area and as I love plants, we decided to visit the Roof Garden. It’s free to walk around. It’s not huge, but still plenty big enough to be enjoyable. We only saw one other person whilst we were there. There’s a...More

15 minutes if you are just walking through, it is just the length of the building, but there are two sides to it. It is free and you can spend as long as you want, there are chairs to sit down.
