A great place for peaceful contemplation, inspiration and reprioritising as you read the plaques of those who have put others’ lives before their own, right in the heart of the city and very accessible.

The flower beds here are spectacular at the present with Canna lillies and Japanese anenomes but the highlight is the poignant memorial to those who dies heroically trying to save others.

This quiet corner is a good place to stop and rest, have your packed lunch and appreciate the stories and drama behind the plaques that briefly outline how brave souls from times past gave their lives to save others.

A quiet spot away from the main road... pretty and peaceful... good for a break from the busy City... nicely cared for with plenty of seating...and a touch of history... something different.

A quiet park with interesting plaques of heroic people. Well worth visit if you are passing or nearby.

Not to be missed. This is a tranquil gem in the middle of London. The park is beautifully maintained. At the back are plaques dedicated to ordinary people who died doing heroic deeds. It is absolutely fascinating.

A quiet, lovely little park hiding amongst big buildings in a busy area. The key "attraction" is the wall of tiles each telling the story of someone who tragically died....helping save someone in a fire or drowning or air raid or boiler explosion...and so on. If you are nearby, it's worth swinging by and seeing this monument to the human spirit.

A hidden gem in the chaos of central London. Set between high buildings this is a great park space- with plenty of places to just sit and relax. The memorial wall is worth taking a few minutes to read.
