The Phoenix Garden is the best-kept secret of London’s West End. Open daily, it provides a peaceful green retreat for local residents, workers and tourists and is a haven for a wide range of urban wildlife.
Created by local volunteers in 1984, this is the last of the Covent Garden community gardens. It demonstrates what can be achieved with ingenuity upon a bedrock of West End rubble. Plants are chosen to suit difficult growing conditions and to support a wide range of wildlife species.
The Phoenix Garden is a registered charity managed by an enthusiastic team of volunteers and funded through donations and grants. Awards received include Natur Im Garten ecological garden accreditation in 2016, and a Camden Design Award in 2017 for a new community building.
