The Garden

The Passage's Ornamental Kitchen Roof Garden was designed by multiple Chelsea gold medal award winner and BBC Gardeners' World presenter, Adam Frost. Located on the fifth floor roof of The Passage Resource Centre, it has commanding views over Westminster Cathedral. The garden's raised beds contain a fascinating collection of fruits, vegetables and plants, some with therapeutic uses. There is also a splendid wall sculpture of a tree of remembrance and a rose arbour that incorporates the roof's chimneys. There are plenty of benches available for visitors to sit and enjoy the garden and the view.
