Although I have strolled along the South Bank for many years, I’ve failed to notice the sign to Queen Elizabeth Roof Garden. So, just to give you a gentle hint, look for the GIANT YELLOW CONCRETE STAIRCASE.
I enjoyed a coffee here from the café bar. The menu looked appetising. I had a stroll around the wild flower meadow and mini allotment, not what you expect in London, a real secret garden, serendipitous.
There’s also a family craft centre, someone asked me if I wanted to join a clay workshop. Alas I would, but I had to get back to work.
Wonderful hideaway, useful to know to impress family and friends when taking them along the South Bank on a sunny day.
