The roof garden on top of the office block at 120 Fenchurch Street is to reopen following a lengthy pandemic closure.

What is known as The Garden at 120 sits on top of the newly opened Fen Court office building at, unsurprisingly 120 Fenchurch Street, and is dramatic in both the size of the roof space and the views available.

It had only been open for a year, having opened in February 2019 and the plants were just starting to get settled in when it had to close for the pandemic, and although lots of indoor spaces have been open, the roof garden, being entirely outdoors had been somewhat conspicuous in remaining closed. It does need a lift to get to the roof, but that wasn’t an impediment to other venues opening to the public.

Now, the Garden at 120 has announced that it will finally reopen, with the first visitors allowed up on Monday 6th December.

The garden will be open Mon-Fri 10am-6pm, closed at weekends.

At the moment it’s not clear if you will need to book tickets, as it used to be a turn up and go up sort of venue before. Check their website closer to the date to see if that changes.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Wow.I was in touch with them re this, and well after the lockdwns ended they were still shut with no view as to when they would reopen. Good I guess but sad to have missed what little summer we had.

    I agree. I loved to picnic up there and I don’t get why it’s been closed so long!

    Looks pretty concrete-y to me, plus views of my least favourite building, the walkie-talkie, ensures I probably won’t go. Thanks for saving my time. BTW if you want more of a garden then try the walkie-talkie itself. Saves you having to look at it, too. 🙂

      It’s one of the best views in London. Amazing height level and panorama. You definitely won’t be looking at the floor.
