  • Nice rooftop gardens to stroll through. Not a complete roof so you could get wet. We ate at one end in Big Easy and had cocktails the other end in Giant Robot. I would recommend both.  more »
  • Situated in Canary Wharf is this peaceful rooftop garden where you can relax and chill out for a while. Totally free and below is a shopping mall and restaurants. If near here for the day pay a visit ...  more »

  • Lovely place to get away, see something green and relax for a bit. Quite peaceful actually and so many nice plants to see. At the moment there are free dance classes and there is a neat little machine which selects and prints out short stories for you. I'd recommend get your story, find a bench, have a read and enjoy some quiet time.
  • Wonderful oasis of calm in the heart of the city. (At least on a Sunday?) Love the idea of the West/East split of the planting as it straddles the meridian. The structure sits atop the shops and canary wharf docklands station and from certain angles looks like something from a star trek space dock, certainly one of the more impressive modern tfl stations!
