Few tourists come across the road from the Tower of London to investigate these delightful gardens that contain two very impressive memorials to the Merchant Seaman who died in the First and Second World Ward. There are about 36000 names in total.

Trinity Hill Monument is an awesome tribute the seamen, marines, etc. lost in WWI and WWII. It stands impressively on Trinity Square. It is impossible not to admire its design and fortitude. It looks like a Greek Temple.
