Queen Elizabeth Hall Roof Garden
Welcome to London's very own secret garden
Nestled on top of the Queen Elizabeth Hall, the Roof Garden is a haven, home to over 200 wild native plants, a luscious lawn, views across London and our Cafe & Bar.
Since it opened in 2011, this peaceful space has become a much-loved feature of the Southbank Centre, especially on sunny days.
It's the ideal spot to lose yourself in a great book, or to work remotely surrounded by nature.
The Roof Garden Cafe & Bar offers speciality coffee, savoury and sweet snacks, cold beer and a selection of premium wines. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy classic summertime drinks, or discover a new range of unique cocktails inspired by the garden’s herbs and flowers.
The garden, originally a partnership with the Eden Project, was built and continues to be maintained by a team of incredible volunteers alongside our head gardener, Paul Pulford, founder of Grounded Ecotherapy, a pioneering recovery programme.
