About this room

Full of flowers and fragrant medicinal herbs, the Cloister Garden is a haven of peace in the bustling energy of Clerkenwell. It is frequently used for champagne receptions, after wedding ceremonies in St John’s Gate, and summer parties are a joy when held amongst drifts of lavender and roses in the shade of the 200 year old olive tree at the heart of the garden.

If the weather suddenly misbehaves, there is no need to despair: the adjacent Priory Gallery is warm and welcoming!
