The Garden

Framed by Roman House, part of the Roman Wall and Salters' Hall, Salters' Garden is sunk below street level in a formal style of box hedging, lawn, pergolas, gravel pathways and paving.

After major building redevelopment in 2017, the garden joins the neighbouring sites of St Alphage Garden and the Brookfield/Schroder space to form the largest public space created in the City since WW1. The garden also now features accessible routes, better lighting of the Roman Wall, additional hornbeam hedging and a new decorative water feature at the east end. Stonemason Lida Lopes Cardozo Kindersley carved the inscription on the water feature.

Gardener: Mr F. Wright
