Guy Street Park

by Southwark Council

A builders yard and burial ground for Guy’s Hospital until the 1890s, the park combines space for recreation with flowering planting and places to relax. Paths lined with beech hedges lead from the playground, with its tyre swing and spider web, past the basketball court, to shady arbours planted with jasmine and seating areas ringed with rowan, lavender and rosemary. New raised beds with herbs, seasonal flowers and shrubs create views, as well as screening areas for shelter and quiet relaxation.

Can you find… the jasmine covered pergola?
