The area
Address
Neighborhood: Spitalfields
For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the next big global trend, the hipster zone of Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

 Wedged between the business-minded City of London, expressly trendy Shoreditch, and zestful Whitechapel, the lines between traditional and contemporary beautifully blur in this historic East End nexus.
How to get there
  • Shoreditch High St • 6 min walk
  • Whitechapel • 9 min walk

It was a fun community place and had a lot of great street art. Visited many times. Remember it as a vacant lot, then the community gardens and now back to an empty by fenced-off lot where they are developing on.... goodbye community garden....

What a wonderful garden, or maybe what a wonderful street art installation area.

When you look around here you can see what the locals can do with a few old tyres and paint spray cans. It is quite a dynamic place though where work is over painted on a regular basis.

If you are lucky you may even get a chair to sit on. Plenty of people playing music and having s drink. Just a really nice place to see some street culture and to see what people can make out of so little.

An amazingly fun garden that is off the beaten track.

The vibe is so carefree, peaceful, such a breath of fresh air!

You can see artists at work, people lingering about on makeshift chairs and tables; folks having a grand old time!

A little something for everyone. So glad we stumbled upon this tucked away garden. Highly recommend.

Tips: On rainy days, the ground gets a bit muddy, wear comfortable shoes that you don't mind getting dirty.

On the way to the garden, there is some stunning street art too. Also, nearby there's also a wonderful park with some pretty cool swings.

The Nomadic Garden is a hidden gem! While shopping along Brick Lane, I saw a sign pointing me to the Nomadic Garden and I followed. I'm so glad I did. If you're in the area, and outsider art is your thing, this is the stop for you! It's free to visit, but you are encouraged to donate to the upkeep (there is a container for donations, no direct solicitation). On Saturdays, they have a bonfire. I'm sorry I missed out on that. Stop by and support your neighborhood artists (even if it's not your neighborhood).

A quirky little hipster hangout with lots of graffiti, artwork from recycled items, lots furnishing built from scrap wood, people hanging around chatting and smoking weed etc. Kudos for the idea of building a community garden, but really there's not much to see for a city boy. There's mud everywhere and the gardens are empty. Maybe winter isn't the best time to go.

Loved the vibe of this neighborhood and this park. A local recommended I check this out and he said, "there's so much new paint it's still wet". He wasn't kidding. This area is constantly being adorned with new street art and is an awesome place to spend some time on a nice day. The garden has little pop ups for drinks and there's plenty of seating to bring your own lunch. Grab something from one of the million options on Brick Lane and head over here to hangout!

Found by accident signposted off Brick Lane. Cannot believe this place is not included in more secret London guidebooks. Creative and bright, lots of hidden corners. Places to sit down and relax. Some of the veggie plots just coming into season. loved the sculptures made of old tyres. Was given a mini sweet Easter egg by a small girl as a treat . Loved it !!!

Really great spot - touch bleak in Winter but considering it's a community garden project that's to be expected. Would still recommend visiting year round to check it out as there was a small fire to sit round when I recently visited end of Feb.

This place is a hidden community situated in the heart of Shoredtich. If you find the entrance, you'll enter a colourful world of graffiti, repurposed vehicles and trash, and a scattering of locally-run venues.

It's an adventure to explore, and has loads of hidden corners to relax in. Lots of people smoke weed here, so if you find that an issue, don't visit. It's a fun, laid-back place that I'm sure is great in the summer.

Found the garden by chance. We were following the wall artwork around Brick Lane & like dogs picking up an aniseed trail , as the artwork became more profuse, we ran further than planned. A stunning tropical hornbill to the side of a railway bridge beckoned us on to view even more artwork & the gardens just beyond.
The garden sits between railway lines & although owned by Network Rail, has ( temporarily, unfortunately ) evolved into the wonderful, quirky, inventive site that it is.
The local community has put together an amazing array of artwork in the form of sculptures, wall paintings & other forms of ornament together with cafes, a theatre, allotments & hanging out areas using recycled goods. Lots of wooden pallets, old window frames, the odd vehicle have been used.
The whole garden is wedge shaped. You enter at the narrowest point & end at the widest where a concrete wall carries a stunning array of artwork.
So much to see & credit to the ingenuity of the local community.
