Queen Elizabeth Gardens

by D4P Architects

Queen Elizabeth Gardens is a triangle of land designed to be a vibrant visual amenity as well as a pause point along the journey from St. John’s Churchyard to Potter’s Fields Park and into More London. The design of this space revolves around the sustainability as well as native planting. At the west apex of the triangle is a statue by Sydney March of Samuel Bourne Bevington, first mayor of Bermondsey, who stands proudly in robes of office in one corner, and dockers’ champion Ernest Bevin
in the centre. Behind the pavilion of the recently Michelin-starred Restaurant Story is an impressive French Lime tree.

Can you find… the coat-of-arms of Bermondsey?
