The Garden

The green oasis of Crossrail Place Roof Garden lies amongst the towering buildings of Canary Wharf, providing the perfect escape for those working nearby and the local communities.

The exotic roof garden is filled with ferns, grasses of all kinds, and flowering shrubs chosen to reflect the parts of the world with which the West India Docks traded in the 19C and 20C, trade which is reflected in the area's name, Canary Wharf. The landscape matures each year, under a stunning curved roof - a 'must-visit' site!
