The Roof Gardens: A 3 in 1 Garden

A haven of peace 30 meters above the buzzy High Street, The Roof Gardens in a well-known address in the neighbourhood.

Inaugurated in 1938 and bought by Sir Richard Branson in the 80s, it's the oldest rooftop garden in London.

During the day, you can visit over 6000m2 of gardens, divided into three themes: a Moorish garden, inspired by the Alhambra, a Tudor garden with stone arches and an English garden where magnificent flamingos reside.

At nightfall, the space transforms into a glamorous nightclub with DJs, live music, girly cocktails and barbecue.

And from morning to evening, you can have a drink at the Babylon restaurant to take advantage of the panoramic view of the city.
