St Botolph without Bishopsgate Churchyard

St Botolph’s was one of the first Churches to convert their churchyard into a garden and has a busy central path along with benches, a fountain, planted beds and two lawn areas.

The Garden is made up of the churchyard of St Botolph without Bishopsgate and land donated from the Common Council in 1760. The churchyard was one of the first to be transformed into a public garden in 1863 following the Burial Act of 1852.
