I worked in the City of London for thirty years and now that I'm not in the City everyday I've discovered this hidden treasure. It’s less than a ten minute walk from where I worked and just over the road from St Pauls. Amazing.
It’s also an amazing place and holds the Watts Memorial to Heroic Self Sacrifice built in 1900, but more on that later.
The gardens were opened in 1880 and are made up of the churchyards and graveyards of three nearby churches, and today it’s a quiet haven for office workers. It got it’s name from its popularity as a lunchtime garden with workers from the nearby Old Post Office, so it really is a postman's park!
