Roof Garden


Our beautiful and award-winning Roof Garden sits atop Queen Elizabeth Hall as an oasis in central London. It’s free to visit and relax among wildflowers, fruit trees and allotments with beautiful views of the Thames and London’s iconic skyline.

There is also a cafe and bar serving beers, wines, soft drinks, tea and coffee, a range of sandwiches and other snacks.

Created in 2011 to celebrate the Festival of Britain’s 60th anniversary, this peaceful space is now a much-loved feature of Southbank Centre and an ideal location to enjoy the sunshine and a drink from the bar.

The garden, originally a partnership with the Eden Project, was built and continues to be maintained by Grounded EcoTherapy – a group of volunteers who have experienced homelessness, addiction and mental health problems. Queen Elizabeth Hall Roof Garden has helped these individuals turn their lives around, giving them a new focus, building their confidence and improving their wellbeing.
