Looking for a peaceful place in a crowded London?  Beautiful and quiet, the Crossrail Place Roof Garden is the perfect spot.

A fascinating fact is that this garden is located almost exactly on the Meridian line and the planting is arranged according to which hemisphere they are from with Asian plants such as bamboos to the east, and plants such as ferns from the Americas to the west.

This urban garden, opened in May 2015, sits above Canary Wharf Crossrail Station which is due to open in 2018
