The Phoenix Garden

Covent Garden

The Phoenix Garden is in the heart of London's West End, situated behind the junction of Charing Cross Road and Shaftesbury Avenue.

The garden entrance is on St.Giles Passage.

The Phoenix Garden is a community garden and registered charity, managed by volunteers, created to provide a green retreat from the stresses of London's West End and a vital habitat for urban wildlife.

The garden is maintained using sustainable techniques and an innovative approach to wildlife gardening. We use plants that grow reliably in dry conditions, that look good all year round and that will be of maximum benefit to wildlife. We create many different habitats to encourage as many species as we can.

The charity also organises a wide range of community garden events through the year.

We welcome all visitors who respect our garden and are open every day of the year.

    10-Dec-2013 Report

    This park is a little gem, and I feel nervous to share it.

    If you are looking for a little bit of peace and quite when in town, this little garden is perfect.

    You can simply take a break from pounding the streets. Grab and sandwich and sit in the sun. Let the little one out of the pushchair for a run around.

    It is a small garden, but it has lots of little nooks with seating. Its completely fenced in, and the volunteers who tend the garden seem very happy for families to be there.

    Its situated behind the junction of Charing Cross Road and Shaftesbury Avenue, so perfect if you are shopping the back streets of Covent Garden.

    Just make sure you take your rubbish with you!
