Visit Transport for London's Walking Journey Planner to find the quickest routes or use the links on the right for interactive maps and podcasts covering Islington, the City, Upper Chelsea & Belgravia, and Bloomsbury.
We also provide local area maps in the guidebook that comes with your ticket. We hope that, in conjunction with an A-Z, this will make it easier for you to walk between some of the gardens.
Legible London is a means to improve pedestrian wayfinding across London through consistent information provision in the form of signs and hand held maps. It’s the world’s largest pedestrian wayfinding project and so far there are approximately 900 Legible London signs in place.
This year we are delighted to offer a number of guided walks, led by experienced and friendly City of London and Blue Badge Guides. It's a great way to visit some of the popular gardens as well as take in some of the more secret ones.
The City of London has always had interesting gardens. Both the Romans and medieval gardeners grew a variety of plants that added interest to an otherwise limited diet, and in many ways this tradition continues. However, plants are no longer grown in the City for their nutritional value but for their horticultural delight. Amongst them there are many that can be eaten – in a salad or infused in a tea or to flavour a dish. So, come and walk with us and ‘munch a petal’ and get inspiration for your own menu.
Walks take place on Saturday and Sunday, starting at 11am, and will be approximately one hour long. Booking essential: please email us »
These self-guided walks connect most of the squares and gardens in SW5, SW7 and W8 opening for the 2013 Open Garden Squares Weekend. At the same time, they pass through many of the Royal Borough's quiet and attractive back streets.
