Decided to follow the yellow brick road (steps) to see the Garden Cafe. Found a beautiful natural garden filled with places to relax. Great views over the river, great drinks (wonderful Pimms and Spritzer), tasty nibbles. Beautiful space. Find it. Enjoy.

Nice spot to sit in the sun drinking Pimms, busy this weekend but there were lots of places to perch or you can sit on the grass. Great views of the river and the London Eye.

The stairs are painted bright yellow. Located close to the skateboard park, in the past I have the place often closed but on a Saturday in September it was open. Several people were enjoying the quiet ambiance, seemed a long way away from the bustling...More

Once you know about this place you'll go here often. It's a more relaxing place to sit and look at the wonders of the great city than down on ground level. There's a bar & café area but you can take your own food &...More
