This roof garden is a truly hidden gem, in the concrete and glass jungle that is London, and specifically in Canary Wharf. This is the first place we happened to come to, when we arrived in London for a week-long visit. The general area around...More

Lots of plants nicely laid out. It would be nice to take a drink out there. And not much of a view. I would only go back if in the area. I would not make an effort to go back.

15 minutes if you are just walking through, it is just the length of the building, but there are two sides to it. It is free and you can spend as long as you want, there are chairs to sit down.
