The Cathedral monastic herb garden situated at the east end of the Cathedral is a wonderful place to sit and relax and despite it being cheek by jowl with Borough High Street and the railway it feels very peaceful

In late Spring when it is bursting with new growth and you are enjoying the glorious scent of the four old roses planted therewhich were once grown to make perfume and rose oil, you are likely to see a whole host of wildlife from Bumble Bees and Butterflies to Ladybirds and Caterpillars. 

The old stone font attracts all kinds of birds who are drinking and splashing about in the water.  Common British lizards have also been spotted over the years!

It is a little bit of paradise in a busy and vibrant part of London.

Mark, Cathedral Gardener
