Welcome to Christchurch Greyfriars Garden

This garden covers the burial grounds on the site of the former nave of Christchurch Greyfriars, which were taken over by the Corporation of London in 1931. The Rose garden was laid out in 1989 and is designed to match the floor plan of the former Wren Church. The central paved aisle is flanked on either side by box-hedged beds which represent the original position of the pews. The structures which support climbing roses and clematis are copies of the wooden surrounds which decorated the original stone pillars.
A second information point can be found in the churchyard on Newgate Street.
