“Beauitful peaceful garden just off the busy street”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2012

These gardens lie behind the old houses/shops of Southside St in the Barbican. They are not large, but are really peaceful and are a lovely place for a quiet half hour when you are out and about on the Barbican

“An oasis in a busy city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012

The gardens, when you find them, they are a well kept secret, form a calm oasis in the busy and bustling Barbican. A great place to stop and relax but shhhhh don't tell anyone else. Enjoy!!!

“Great little space.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2012

Comparatively unknown but open daytimes and in any kindof weather this is an atmospheric and peaceful environment. Surrounded by high ish old buildings, plenty of stone walls and neat little traditional plantings. Look out the entrances on a map and go take a look. And it's free.

“Free and hardly advertised.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2011

More a pastiche than the real item but it is a sanctuary of quiet and restfulness. Captures the spirit of the old Barbican. Then you can go for a few pints of Bass in the Dolphin.
